I can confirm this problem.  I used konsole w/ kde 3.x for many years and never
had any issues with temp space.  Under 4.x though, I'm generating about 1GB per
week of temp files (granted I run lots of shells, but is probably about 1000x
more data than the actual text in the scrollback, what gives?).  

In my case, I have a home directory with a quota on it, and unless I manually
restart konsole regularly, I run into the quota which causes konsole to crash. 
I then have to remove the temp files manually before restarting konsole or it
will continue to crash.

And, since the tmp files are all in some kind of binary format, I cannot even
recover the scrollback of a crashed session, unless there is a way to do this
that I'm not aware of.
