Hmm, I am using de_DE@euro as locale and Konqueror has the google problem on 
entering line like "gg:üöä" will result in a search line of "???" in 
google :-(

I looked at the settings and changed it to the following line:
and now it works.

Looks like that one is broken.
Starting konqueror now with:
$LC_ALL=de_DE.UTF-8 konqueror
and again using "gg:üöä" now gives a false string but works with the default. 
Is there a way to have the ie= value (obviously for "input encoding") 
dependent on the locale? Cannot be too hard to do (simply using 
nl_langinfo(CODESET) or some QT stuff).
Another work-around is to always start konqueror with UTF-8 locale. However, 
that bad for GTK1 programs started from there :-(

What a mess ;)
