Description O Kullmann 2011-08-25 10:03:02 UTC
Version:           2.6 (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

When relaunching KDE, certain Konsole windows are never recreated (while certain
others are).
These Konsole windows got names, some of them have several tabs, some don't.
All that just disappears after restarting KDE.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
As I said, certain windows never re-appear, others always do. I do not see
anything which distinguishes theem.

Actual Results:  
Certain Konsole windows are not re-created.

Expected Results:  
The Konsole windows should be re-created.

OS: Linux (x86_64) release
Compiler: gcc

The underlying problem is that Konsole does not offer configuration management.
Only some profiles can be edited, but first of all, this does not work (just
random results), and, more important, the concept is flawed, since it does not
give control (for example, you can't even store something -- and then of course
it disappears), and it must be WINDOW-centric.
That is, obviously there needs to be an explicit configuration file (which can
be edited, stored, saved) for every Konsole *window* (not some general themes).
I, like most people, have for example connections to remote machines, and these
connections are ALWAYS there, they are located in specific VIRTUAL DESKTOPS,
with special settings (size, colour, name, location on desktop, how much
history etc.). So I want these, say, 20 Konsole windows always to be there.
This worked with KDE3, but not at all with KDE4. If KDE wouldn't simulate microsoft, but instead would just follow standard Linux/Unix approaches (which
is file-based), none of these problems would be there.

I think that underlying problem you are talking about is this :

Bug 175140 - konsole -profile functionality from kde 3.5.x
