$KDEHOME/share/config/kwinrulesrc

$KDEHOME/share/config/konsolerc

$KDEHOME: Unless you have set this manually, the default path should be 
~/.kde or some variant, perhaps ~/.kde4 or the like on distros that have 
supported multiple kde versions at some point.

The first one is the kwin window rules file, the second one konsole's 
config.  I'm guessing it's in one or the other.  As usual, consider 
making a backup of the file before testing, and ensure the application in 
questin isn't running when you mess with its config file.  That's going 
to mean kwin not running for that one, which means either switching to a 
different window manager for a bit, or working with the file either from 
some other DE or from a text console.  Since ensuring konsole isn't 
running is a bit easier, I'd suggest testing that one first.
