I am running KDE from HEAD dated 20031106 and I cannot confirm your behaviour. 
Konqueror correctly encodes the URL.

That bug is specific to non-UTF8 locales using KDE_UTF8_FILENAMES. And it 
affects filenames only, therefore it cannot be the source of your problem.

Also, please note that gg: is supposed to use UTF-8 no matter what your locale 
setting is.

Not exactly broken, but it has made invalid UTF-8 sequences be read and 
transformed into a QString without failing.

Sorry, as I said I cannot reproduce the behaviour. I don't think I can comment 
on that. However, I can say that I remember gg: always using UTF-8, even in 
the 3.1.x branch. Therefore, either it's a local configuration error or one 
changed introduced to the branch broke that.
