qbzr can be used entirely independently of Explorer. In fact that's how 
I use it most of the time. I've integrated the qbzr commands I use the 
most (qlog, qdiff, qcommit, qpush) into Komodo as "tools" that I can run 
from a menu. However, the converse is not true of Explorer, as the 
website indicates.

I have the correct versions. However, the Conflicts window that I was 
assuming was Explorer code is in fact a qbzr command invoked from 
selecting Resolve Conflicts from the Work menu in Explorer's main 
window. It is this Conflicts window which is not invoking kdiff3 
correctly when I select a file and click the Launch... button.

If I use "Merge conflict" from the context menu of a file in the qcommit 
window, it invokes kdiff3 correctly.

I guess I should file a bug about this.
