Yes, nothing strange happening there.  Konqueror kept refusing to modify
add or delete bookmarks.  I gave up and obliterated the ~/.kde folder,
after all there was not much to lose in the freshly installed system.  My
problem remains though as to how to get my previous bookmarks back.  I
can't believe how complicated this turned out to be.  Not quite sure what
to do now, but will report back if I find some solution.

Thanks a lot for your help so far,
