[Rd] Using konqueror with help.start

For R-1.2.3 on a Debian 2.3 (testing) GNU/Linux system I would like
to have help.start use Konqueror (the KDE web browser) instead of
netscape.  I can start it with

 help.start(browser = "konqueror")

but trying to search for terms from the search page does not work.  

My guess is that I need to configure javascript.  The default is not
to allow javascript at all.  I do not wish to enable javascript
globally.  Under Settings->Configure Konqueror->Javascript I have set
accept for the localhost Host/domain.  This does not seem to help.

Can anyone give instructions on how I can allow searching without
globally enabling javascript?

This is important to me because there is a long-standing wishlist bug
against the Debian r-base package that I could close if I could use
show that Konqueror could be used instead of netscape.
