Konqueror needs to stop IPv6 somehow

Firefox (and Iceweasel, which I actually use, on Debian Sid) can avoid using IPv6 which speeds up dramatically the browsing experience, for me. But with Konqueror on KDE 4.3.4 on Debian Sid, I cannot figure out how to do this, and page loads take forever.

Konqueror has great support for browsing every network connection type, not just http(s), but the IPv6 support kills it for me as a Web (http) browser. I use it to browse all kinds of other network protocols tho (and Dolphin as well).
