Last time I touched the KMail part it did perform the important clean 
up steps, for instance any modified folders were saved to disk.

IIRC the only steps that weren't done were auto compaction of folders 
and auto expiry of old messages. Frankly I don't consider these steps 
very important, and I think there are more important things to worry 

In support of this stance I'd like to point out the clean up steps 
omitted by the KMail part where the same steps that were omitted when 
KMail was not closed by the user, e.g. the case when session 
management closes KMail when the user logs out of KDE.

If it's broken now then I would appreciate it if someone put it back 
the way I left it.
