I always have hated icon view mode.

I suspect the problem you are experiencing is resolved by an 
undocumented configuration change. I know of no place this 
documented, no place this is easily remembered, no place this is 
obviously configurable. Try this,

Open konqueror.

Change to Tree View or Detailed List View.

At the bottom of the file pane, "right click" on any part of the 
blank white space.

From the popup menu, select Properties.

The dialog should show "Type: Folder."

At the right side of the "Type" information line, select the tiny 
wrench icon.

In the subsequent "Edit File Type inode/directory" dialog, select 
the Embedding tab.

In the Services Preferences Order list box, move Tree View or 
Detailed List View to the top.


You also can do this in kcontrol -> File Associations -> inode -> 

Now try saving your konqueror profile.

I always have hated icon view mode.
