This is a feature, not a bug. (I cannot believe I just typed that.)

There is a transition going on between 128bit and 1024bit certificates.  This
requires an intermediate certificate of authority.  Konqueror is a stickler for
this step, while Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera aren't, as they tend to
bundle the intermediate certificate with their build in chain.  When I install a
new certificate for one of my webhost customers, I use Konqueror to verify that
it has been installed correctly.  It is the only browser that checks each and
every step of the certificate chain.  Technically any site that Konqueror
complains about isn't properly installed and isn't properly secured.
