The good news here is that such complaints were one of the big things they 
were working on for akonadi with 4.5 and 4.5.1 (the latter being when kmail 
starts using it, itself).  From what I've read, 4.5 is much better at 
limiting both nepomuk and akonadi to "reasonable" I/O usage, so they're 
not hogging the entire I/O bandwidth, preventing anything else from 
getting anywhere.

But I'll let Kevin fill in the details, as he's one of the guys actually 
working on the akonadi and kmail thing.
