Right, so you know how to do this for konqueror and ls?

KDE's open and save dialogs allow sorting by date, so any KDE app
should be able to handle it. I don't know if there's something you can
do to save it as a default sort, but there may be something in ~/.kde/
that you can change.

In fact, KDE's open dialog seems to remember you wanted sorting by date...
I bet there's a file in ~/.kde/ that has changed to reflect this.
