[kde-freebsd] Crash in kmail 2.1.1 on msg with charset = gb2312

Every mail that has charset="gb2312" set will cause kontact / kmail 2.1.1 to 
segfault upon viewing / opening.

I can open the message with kwrite and change the charset to UTF-8, after 
which the message opens without causing crashes.

I filed a bug for this on bugs.kde.org, but the problem seems te be not 
reproducable under linux, so it's either FreeBSD specific of me specific. Can 
anyone running kmail 2.1.1 (kdepim 4.6.1) check whether they experience the 
same problem?

There is more information (including an example mail) available in that bug-


I run 8.2-STABLE FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE with a custom kernel. Updating to latest 
8.2-STABLE did not change things.
