How to get Konqueror to execute shell scripts in a new console on double click

So I have some shell scripts that start GUI things, and they don't need an extra terminal - these KDE/Konqueror mime-types already handle. But others, when I execute them, I want to open in a new terminal. How can I change the default action for such monsters - and it ISN'T just adding a konsole or bash task as the top "open with" application, because, since these scripts are rwxr-xr-x - i.e. executable - konqueror automatically executes them in the background when I double click on them. Marking them non-executable doesn't do it either.

I HAVE added an appropriately configured bash.desktop running in a separate konsole for these - its just that I want them to run on double click rather than by right click and "open with".
