This is KMail 1.9.6. I think that I only encountered that after upgrading to
this version. Part of the problem is the difficulty in tracing bugs, and
part is the fact the kde4 is just around the corner. Most kde applications
are undergoing re-coding, which should deal with the problems caused by
legacy code and hard-to-trace bugs. For the moment, if you do have the
problem, my solution will probably help you through. kde4 is something
definitely to look forward to.
