Version: (using KDE 4.2.0)
Installed from: Unspecified Linux
If you have 3 columns opened and then decide to enable or disable the tooltips in the settings, dolphin will "lose" the first two columns.
I hope you understand what I mean
still valid on a recent kde from trunk
I can confirm this behavior here using:
Qt: 4.6.0 (Qt git branch 4.6 commit 52aef13521af2137db15ee878893f5c5150471e5
Date: Mon Oct 12 14:18:51 2009 +1000)
KDE: 4.3.72 (KDE 4.3.72 (KDE 4.4 >= 20091015))
kdelibs svn rev. 1038788 / kdebase svn rev. 1038788
on ArchLinux i686 - Kernel 184.108.40.206
When updating the settings the last expanded folder in the Column view is set as the "main one", and therefore the "column history" (showing the parents folders) are lost/closed.
Tooltips are not the only setting that affects the Columns view, I could confirm this with other general settings.
Confirmed on current trunk (KDE 4.6 dev cycle) although with a different result.
Here are my steps to reproduce this.
1. Change view to column view
2. open a few folders so you have a few columns open
3. now go to the dolphin settings and enable tooltips
Now your thrown back into "Detail view" mode with the column that had focus.
I can't imagine that this is intended ^_-

Fixes problem reported here.
This patch also fixes one more problem semi related to this bug: after applying settings sometimes view mode would reset to directory default(if active directory would have such).
