           Summary: Can't deactivate "Enable flow control" setting
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: ken.manheimer gmail com

Version:           2.1 (using KDE 4.0.83)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

in konsole's Advanced tab of Edit current profile, the checkbox "Enable flow control using Ctrl+S , Ctrl+Q" is set and grayed out, so that the user cannot configure konsole to disable flow control.  this is a problem for applications that handle the handshaking themselves, and use flow control keys - ctl-s - for other things: emacs, nano, etc.

a workaround is to use 'stty -ixon' to disable flow control in the terminal.  that must be done locally, before any remote logins, and it sucks to have to remember to do so.  some won't figure it out.

this was a known problem in kde 4.1 beta 1, according to 
(search for "Enable flow control".)
