If a folder contains a file called ".hidden", and that file contains a list of 
folder or file names, then konqueror treats those files/folders as hidden 
also.  In edgy, there is such a file in the root folder (its actually a 
symlink to /etc/kubuntu-default/settings/hidden-root). You can either choose 
View -> Show Hidden Files, or edit/delete the above file.
