Version: (using KDE 4.2.2)
Compiler: gcc (Gentoo 4.3.3-r2 p1.1, pie-10.1.5) 4.3.3
Installed from: Gentoo Packages
I use Konqueror with a combination of privoxy/tor as http proxy. While other browsers (Firefox 3.0.10; Arora 0.6; links 2.2) with the same proxy configuration resolve DNS names via privoxy/tor, konqueror resolves domain names via the DNS servers listed in /etc/resolv.conf.
If I make all entries in /etc/resolv.conf invalid (so that regular domain name resolution does not work any more on my system), konqueror is still able to connect to web pages via privoxy/tor. That is name resulotion via privoxy/tor works for konqueror, but is not use normally.
If I start konqueror via tsocks (that is
$ tsocks konqueror
) the DNS leak does not appear.
Just in case: Rediecting http traffic via privoxy/tor works; there's no problem that my proxy setting are generally ignored.
