To clarify: what Dolphin lacks is: (1) not take the focus from the terminal widget when changeUrl() is called, and (2) an environment variable that tells which window the terminal is attached, so that the script above can send the message to the correct window.

The Dolphin service can be seen in the terminal from the $KONSOLE_DBUS_SERVICE env variable. It is a real problem if you have two windows open of the same instance of Dolphin. I really don't know how to distinguish between them. There is a $KONSOLE_DBUS_SESSION, but it links only to the konsole session, not the dolphin window. Anyways, you should suggest this feature to Dolphin developers, half of it is implemented above.

@dStulle: If you just want to use the keyboard to change the directory, you can type Ctrl-L in Dolphin to make the cursor jump to the address bar, where you can type the address of the new directory and press Enter to navigate to it. If you really want to type cd in the command-line, you should be able to make a hack that executes qdbus to send the message org.kde.dolphin.MainWindow.changeUrl($PWD) back to Dolphin. But I think you should give it a try, it is mostly getting used to a new paradigm of GUI-Terminal integration.
