I guess they had one or both of the following use cases in mind:
* ssh to the same machine as different users (a normal user account, root,
* ssh to several machines at different domains with generic (possibly even
identical) host names, like shell.example.com
Of course, in your use case, it's totally counterproductive. :-(
Another possibility is that no one really thought about it before and
that's how the widget truncates text by default.
I would suggest a trip over to the Konsole mailing list and/or send in
a patch. In my (albeit limited) experience, they are pretty receptive.
Personal anecdote: When I highlight text in my konsole, I want it to
go to the clipboard. When I paste (either middle click or
shift+insert) I want to paste from the clipboard. So I submitted a
patch to implement this possibility as a configuration option. I was
pleasantly surprised at how easy the process was (I'm not a C++ guru,
but it didn't take long to figure out exactly what to do). There were
problems with how I implemented some things, but they must have liked
the idea because within maybe a day, one of the maintainers had
rewritten my patch to better conform with what they needed and merged
it. And to this day there is a "Copy on select" and "paste from
clipboard" option in the Profile Settings.
Moral of the story: it never hurts to ask (politely).
