I have a possibly related problem that leads me to to think that konqueror is 
accessing DNS differently than Firefox.  That is, konqueror is much slower at 
loading pages and during the delay, it claims to be looking up host.  I asked 
this question a while ago, and nobody would say that there is different DNS 
approach to konqueror, but I think there is.
