  You wrote in the bug:

For example, in Konqueror select a desired directory, press F4 to open konsole,
and then I type something like the following:

diff -urN kdebase > kdebase-new-diff.diff

Konqueror never updates. I have to manually refresh the pane.

  This has always worked in the Arch builds of tde. see:

  As soon as I create the .diff - it is automatically shown in the konqueror
file window. I have kept an eye on this issue even before your post. I authored
a bug against kde3 for not refreshing the 'directory' pane with new changes long
ago, so I always check.

  The only issue I have seen where I have to manually refresh is on remote files
systems (eg. fish://) when the directory contents change. Like when I build a
package, all packages go in $CHROOT and there is always a $CHROOT/src and
$CHROOT/pkg directory under the parent. If I build tdelibs and browse to the
tree and view the files, if I then build tdebase (which changes the files in the
$CHROOT dir - only then will I have to do a manual refresh.

  I'll test the patch, but do you know if it will have any adverse effects where
the update appears to be already working?
