Opening JAR-Packaged JavaDocs in external Browser

Hi,

I'm running IDEA on Linux and use Konqueror as my standard browser. To
open URLs, I use a script. The Problem now is, that IDEA won't open
URLs pointing into a JAR file in the external browser. There's
absolutely no problem to change a URL like

jar:file:///path/to/archive.jar!/index.html

into

zip:///path/to/archive.jar/index.html

in the script -- in which case Konqueror would perfectly view the
JavaDocs from within the JAR file. However, IDEA prevents me from doing
this by telling me: "No way you could ever view HTML files from within
a JAR".

Well, I know better :/ Is there any way to tell IDEA to just pass that
URL to the external browser?

Cheers,
Raffi
