After seeing your comment, I did a bit more testing and found that what you are saying does indeed work, EXCEPT that if you resize the window (for instance, to 125 * 41) BEFORE you start vim, it then thinks that it has 80 columns even though the window is wider.  In contrast, if you resize an xterm to some large size and then start vim, the xterm gets resized to 80 columns (but again, if you resize the xterm while vim is running, it recognizes the change).  WIERD.  Maybe this is actually a vim bug?  But clearly konsole is doing something different than xterm in this regard.

(And I could have sworn that xterm used to not get resized, but instead caused vim to start knowing that it had >80 columns -- maybe upgrading XFree86 from 4.3.0 to = 4.4rc2 broke something in the interaction between xterm and vim?)

By the way, my konsole version is 1.2 (supplied with KDE 3.1.0 -- this information apparently didn't make it into my original feature request).  I haven't yet tried the above tests under KDE 3.1.5, but plan to do so after I perform some other necessary upgrades.
