you could just start it from the krun-dialog and keep your terminal 
free, too.  I think alt-f2 brings that up, and/or, it should be in the 
kmenu listed simply as "Run program" or "Run ..." or something, but I 
have no experience with the last few versions of kde...
and konsole has tabs, so, even if you locked one terminal up by 
forgetting the &, you could open another tab (or another terminal).

just a thought


free/open source software
