Another observation in the same vein...  There are two files in
my .kde/share/config * directory which contain the string [Desktop
Entry].  These are konsolerc and kpdfrc.  In the case of kpdfrc, the
first line in the file says [Desktop Entry] and that file appears as an
executable file in Konqueror.  The konsolerc file has [$Version] on the
first line followed by version information.  If I copy the first two lines
from konsolerc into kpdfrc, and then edit konsole to read kpdf ;-) the
file is now identified as plain text by Konqueror, and Kpdf still
functions normally.  I don't know why Konsole and Kpdf create config
files which contain the string [Desktop Entry] though...

* I am running KDE 3.5.10, built from source, on Slackware 12.2
