OK, I'll do some digging there.
As for a workaround, beside what you suggested, about allowing Konqueror to
keep running in the background or not;
There is this other workaround suggested few days ago by Nuno Oliveira,
consisting in calling Konqueror, eg. from command line, with an appended URL,
$ konqueror about:konqueror
$ konqueror somePath
$ konqueror someFile.pdf
I tested all 3 of them, and it works as expected.
