The way I use konqueror as a file manager is by using split screen:
with one directory in the left pane, and the other directory in the
right pane.  It's simple drag-n-drop after that.  What makes it so very,
VERY convenient is konqueror's sftp:// ability.  I develop web pages
locally and upload them to the live web site via konqueror.

Of course there is so much more you can do.  Right click on a file and
open in another tab.  Right click and open in kwrite.  Etc., usw.

I have NEVER had problems processing "weird named files" in konqueror.
(Tho', myself, I eschew such abominations....)
