Konqueror unable to delete RHN system profiles

Description of problem:
When I attempt to delete a RHN system profile using Konqueror as my web browser,
it fails to delete the profile at the "System Deletion Confirmation Page."
When I click the red button "Confirm Deletion of This System Profile", the same
page re-loads rather than deleting the profile. Mozilla subsequently
successfully deleted this system profile.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Skipjack beta 2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to RHN with Konqueror.
2. Attempt to Delete a System Profile.
3. Click "Confirm Deletion of this System Profile"
Page reloads and nothing has changed.
System profile should be deleted.
Re-tested: Still exists in Red Hat Linux 7.3.

Something to note:
On the RHN side of things, we're seeing formvars getting submitted to completely
different pages than they're intended for.
I.e., the "delete a server" page might get the formvars from archiving scheduled
Found another good testcase showing Konqueror messing up real bad...
Try clicking through the pages of this review, then trying the links on the
left side of the page. Very often with Konqueror you end up at a page showing
MySQL login errors. You never see those errors in Mozilla.
(It seems that their PHP code depends on client submitted data... tsk tsk.)
On RHN, we are still seeing dozens of tracebacks a day from Konqueror users due
to formvar manglement -- and whomever has classified this bug as "low" hasn't
fully considered the potentially ugly ramifications of passing an incorrect
server ID to a "delete server" request page; therefore, I've moved the priority
back to "high". If someone decides to set it back to "low" again, please
explain the rationale to me.
Is there any relief in sight to this issue? It's now two months old.
This has been fixed (at least it works perfectly here with
Please let me know if you can still see this problem with current versions.
I haven't seen any problems like this in Limbo either. Safe to close?
Can errata be issued for KDE fixing this issue in Valhalla? Many people will
still be using 7.3 for a long time, and I would hate for them to use a
dangerously broken browser with this bad behavior.
