[arch-general] Konqueror aesthetic peeve

I know this is a minor thing, but a) it's bugging me, and b) it's
bugging me more that I can't fix it! :-) I thought someone here might
be having the same problem and/or know how to help.
Although I'm an XFCE user, I still use KDE's konqueror as my file
manager. (Old habits die hard. Plus, I've not yet found a file manager
that's better.) I use qtcurve as my widget style throughout my system -
i.e., both with KDE/QT apps and with GTK apps - and so am able to
achieve a uniform look to my UI, which I like very much.
A few days ago, though, a recent pacman upgrade messed up konqueror's
widget display and I can't seem to figure out how to get it back.
Normally, konqueror displays like so:
(Note the ">" icons in the sidebar on the left, for expanding the tree.)
And konqueror still is displaying itself this way when I run it under
any other DE (KDE, fluxbox, etc.). However, when I run it under XFCE
(my DE of choice), it displays like so:
(Note the use of the windows-style "+" icons in the sidebar.)
I find this situation very odd and irritating:
1) Why is this only happening under XFCE?
2) Why is this only happening in the *sidebar* portion of the window?
(If you look at the XFCE screenshot, konqueror is clearly using the
qtcurve-style arrow widgets in other portions of the GUI.)
Anyone else experience this and/or have any idea what pacman update
caused this and/or have any idea how to fix?
