ahah! the problem does involve the cursor jumping around as if with tabs
& after poking around (Konsole help & configure contain nothing)
i find under Mdk Control Centre -> System -> Menus -> Terminals -> Konsole
'Extended Attributes/Values': "kde_opt \\nEncoding=UTF-8\\<other values>".

should i simply delete "\\n...8" or replace "UTF-8" with something else?
i hesitate to cure  1  small problem by introducing many bigger ones ...
