> The first of these entails (on my machine) ~13MB resident memory consumption.

The memory for each process is roughly:

(resident - shared) + (shared / number_of_processes_sharing) 

Konsole itself is very small and most of that shared memory will be for Qt and KDE libraries - so we can effectively ignore it.  That leaves a cost of (resident-shared) for each process.  Using the default Konsole settings this works out at about ~3MB on an i386 system.

In KDE 4 Konsole does do this, except when Konsole is started with a controlling terminal - in which case a new proces is started so that it can inherit the environment of the controlling terminal.
