Thank you for your help, but I planned to evade that (the reason for my previous 
question).

Anyway, I found the cause and it indeed seems like a bug.

Explanation:
Konqueror breaks the configuration (located at ~/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc) 
when using the "Set as background" function in some conditions.

The solution:
Konqueror adds a part starting like [Desktop0Screen0] in 
~/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc
Removing that part does the trick.

Can someone confirm this? If yes, I'm gonna file a bugreport on the kde bugzilla 
or the mailinglist.

Greetings,

Sandro
