Public bug reported:

Affects: kdebase konqueror (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

system:/ and specifically system:/home have lots of issues in KDE 3.5.2. Unfortunately Kubuntu uses system:/home by default instead of /home/user when "Home" is opened through the System-Menu.
The System-Menu is the only place that enables access to "Home", so this will be what most users will be using 90% of the time.

The issues that system:/home has include but are not limited to these:

system:/home shows redundant information in taskbar and current tab

system:/home won't play in amaroK

system:/home kio slave always changes view mode

system:/ kio-slave in KDE 3.5 needs some work

I can only suggest to get rid of system:/home for Kubuntu dapper. This
is not the way their filesystem should be presented to the users by
default. They will be using non-KDE applications as well, so this has to
be fixed.
