Running scripts from konqueror/dolphin

Hi List!

Since my upgrade to KDE 4.5 I've been having a weird problem running 
shell scripts from within konqueror/dolphin. When I click on the with 
the mouse, everything works fine and they are executed and perform as 
expected. When I use the keyboard to select them and press Enter 
(either enter key), they are opened in Kate.
Googling for this has resulted in nothing and browsing through the 
bugs on wasn't very useful, either. I've not been able 
to find any kind of config option to explain this behaviour.

Before I try anything more drastic (backing up ~/.kde and such 
measures), I'd like to see if others have this problem and if 
somebody knows how to fix it?

I have thought of opening them with konsole as a workaroud, but I'd 
really like to solve this problem, if possible...
