ever had problems clearing konqueror's history?

Whenever i clear the History bar in Konequeror with 'settings > configure konqueror> history sidebar > clear history' - it will clear the history for my current session and then as soon as i reboot the URL's i had just removed have re-appeared again...

To fix?
I found if you browse to /home/youruserid/.kde/share/config/konq_history
you will find all the URL's you cleared, still listed inside this file.. Open the file in your favourite editor and remove the URL's... and save.

If you wanted to make this a permanent change you can change the permissions on the file so as it is read only for 'owner' instead of 'read/write' - i have tested and it works.

You may also find the same URL's in /var/tmp/kdecache-youruserid/http

/dev/null > /home/youruserid/.kde/share/config/konq_history

Accomplishes the same result without using an editor.
