Odd. All of the *rc files are plain text files. I have a couple of *rc files listed in Konqueror as Desktop Config Files.

With no file extension how does Trinity detect or determine the file contents?

I'm guessing there is a flaw in the detection algorithms inherited from KDE3. Where are these detection schemes located in the sources? Somewhere in kdelibs? kdebase?
