Description Alvin 2011-06-09 15:26:04 UTC
Version:           2.6.3 (using KDE 4.6.3) 
OS:                Linux

The "Open File Manager" menu item behaves differently while in a remote session. Results are unexpected. Unless used locally, it doesn't open the location in a file manager.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Open konsole
Log on to a remote system
'File' -> 'Open File Manager'

Actual Results:  
Using ssh: another konsole window will open
Using rsh: Error: Malformed URL
Using telnet: Dolphin will open

Expected Results:  
Either the remote location opens (because there is a KIO-slave), or the menu item shouldn't be available.

Pushed by hindenburg into branch 'master'.

For remote session, 'Open File Manager' will open the user's home path.

Currently, when using 'Open File Manager' on a remote session,
unexpected results will occur.  For example, for ssh, it will try to
open another Konsole to ssh into the remote server.
Other options to consider in the future, disabling the menu and
transforming URL into what the user might expect.
