UUGH! Desktop Icons open in DOLPHIN -- really?

  Usually I just turn the icons off, but I was testing things. First strange
behavior was when I turned off Printers, Web Browser, and My Network Places, a
new 'System' icon magically appeared on my desktop. So I opened it, and it
opened in dolphin - you're kidding right? Then I tred My Computer and Home on
the Desktop and both opened in dolphin....

  Why does 'Home' on the desktop open in that crippled dolphin while home from
kicker open correctly in konqueror file manager? That just seems odd. I don't
know where these hooks are made, but I would like to be able to set any desktop
icons to open in konqueror instead of dolphin (dl3phin).
