Konsole doesn't honour "Word characters for double-click selection" option.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade konsole to 4.2.1
There is patch that fixes this issue http://18.104.22.168/mziab/gentoo/kdebase-revert-4.2.0-behavior.patch
It comes from mandriva.
Why not posting working ebuild?
I've found one in kde-testing overlay which has the same patch, but emerge fails with:
* Unpacking parts of kdebase-apps-4.2.1.tar.bz2 to /pt/temp/portage/kde-base/konsole-4.2.1-r1/work ...
cannot make stat on `kdebase-apps-4.2.1': there's no such file or directory.
You have to use whole kde-testing or not, dont worry it will hit tree soon.

ebuild with patch line to fix the character selection behaviour.
The patch from mandriva (posted above) fixes the problem for me. I've attached an updated ebuild based off the konsole-4.2.1.ebuild from the portage tree.

Bug still present in 4.4.0
Confirmed for 4.4.1
@Andreas, please try with 4.4.2, then test the patch and commit it in kde overlay if it works. Thanks
Fixed in 4.4.2
(The german translation is wrong, it says "word delimiters" instead of "word characters", but the functionality is there and the english version is ok.
Filing an upstream bug on the translation.)
