I only use KMail (without Kontact) and I've never seen akonadi use so much 
resources.  It does look like akonadi is misbehaving, perhaps upstream can 
help with that.

Recompiling everything may fix it.  It is possible some dependency is not ABI 
forward compatible.

You can also try cleaning out akonadi resources, such as:

# rm -rf ~/.local/share/akonadi
# rm -rf ~/.config/akonadi

(make sure you back up, may eat your data)
