Yes, it is.  Unfortunately, google isn't.  Konqueror always works for me,
though I have told it to pretend it's Mozilla (version 1.7.3 on Windows XP)
when it talks to google.  I think the fact that it works properly if you
lie about the user agent proves that it really is google's problem.

Not as far as I know.
