Konqueror does not connect to hosts

I usually use the computer with a permanent connection to the Internet, so I hadn't noticed this problem. But lately, since I'm using also my laptop off line I started to struggle with this problem: when I use konqueror to connect to a local site, I get this error:

An error occurred while loading http://localhost:
Could not connect to host http://localhost.
The problem occurs also when I'm connected through a 56k modem: I cannot simply connect to web hosts with konqueror.

Luckily, I found this post,, whose solution seems to work fine: just disable the cache (i.e., uncheck "Use cache"):

But this looks like a serious bug :-(
