konsole ignores konsolerc without a --config option

I got myself into a jam tonight with konsole. I was trying to change konsole's
configuration so that clicking on the close button (X) would not close all tabs.
But no matter what I tried, all tabs kept closing.

One of the things I tried (stupidly) was turning off the konsole menus. And then
I couldn't turn them back on again. I found ~/.kde/share/config/konsolerc and
edited it, changing 'MenuBar=Disabled' to 'MenuBar=Enabled'. Closed and restarted
konsole. No menus. I renamed konsolerc to konsolerc.saved (to force konsole to
create a fresh konsolerc file). Closed and restarted konsole. No menus.

Finally, I discovered that konsole takes a --config <file> command line option. By
including that command line option in my application launcher command line, I got
the menus back. Is life really this hard?

(Afterwards I discovered that typing control-shift-M would have gotten the menus
back. But that wasn't obvious without menus.)

Is this a bug, am I a knucklehead, or both?

I am using Fedora 16 on a 64-bit PC, konsole 2.7.4, KDE 4.7.4. I found that a
menu related bug (id 186561) was fixed in konsole 2.8, but when I do 'yum update konsole',
I am told I have the latest version. And I can see that the developers are working
on 2.9. So even if this is a bug in 2.7.4, will reporting it do any good?

P.S. With the updates I made to konsolerc (don't ask me which ones at this point),
only one tab closes when I click the close button.
