Hmm? I've never seen this (I believe you that it happens, but it strikes me as 
extremely odd behavior)
You can't continue, you say. So this must be a modal dialog. Don't modal 
dialogs always appear on top of the application?
It seems there is a bug in either KMail or in the libs...
Is this fixable to only show on top of the application? (and always _on top_ 
of that application, just like all modal dialogs)
