For local html pages the <link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" .../> tag doesn't work. I even tried to download a page with an _absolute_ favicon link. Again, for the local copy the icon did not show.
From a look into the code I cannot see where it fails. It must be before/during download: the icon does not appear in the cache ($KDEHOME/cache-HOST/favicons not is there an entry in konqueror/faviconrc
Confirmed on 3.5 SVN r575787
I can confirm this for 3.5.9 (Kubuntu 8.04) and SVN trunk rev. 808111: favicons are not shown for local pages, no matter if the link points to a local favicon or one on a web server.

If you download this html file and view it in Firefox, the KDE logo is shown as
favicon in the location bar, also if you download the favicon.ico file and
change the link accordingly. Konqueror does not show it in the location bar.
