This actually has _nothing_ to do with konqueror.  KDE kicks this bouncing
icon off whenever you launch something - and from then on, if there's any
connection to the actual process you launched it's only that it's possible
that this "launch feedback" can be cancelled when the process reaches a
certain point.  In any case, if it keeps going and you don't see anything
else, it generally means the process failed.

The bouncing icon wouldn't do that - but perhaps konqueror _is_ actually
still running and doing something.

That's useful - but the same information should be available already
in .xsession-errors
