No, Konqueror is _not_ being shifted out of the role. It has been
replaced as the default File Manager, but that is it.

Can you please post a link to the feature request that you filed to
have this issue addressed? I've triaged already (took two seconds) and
I'd like to confirm it.

By the way, the Back button _is_ shown by default in the current Dolphin.

Again, link to the bug that you filed! I would like to confirm this too.

Again, link to the bug.

Link to the bug.

This works for me in KDE 4.2.3.

Please, tell me all of the "little things" so that we can triage them
and fix them! You can contact me off list if you like, or even call if
you are more comfortable (972) 54-7881700 GMT+2.

Things _will_ get better, but only if you tell us what is wrong!

If you would like to go into detail about that, then this may be a
feature that could be added.
