What happens is:

konq opens with a blank page (which is fine, I am happy with that). I
click the little "home" iconm and I get the about:konqueror "Conquer
Your Desktop" page. That's also fine. Now I click "Home Folder" and I
see... those pesky icons that I can't get rid of instead of the
desired tree view :-(
