Folders in Kmail 1.5.1 - all new folders are assigned to Top Level

For notice of all users of the broken SuSE kdenetworks3-3.1.1 package.

The broken package wrecks all the folders in the email directory tree.  I 
would advise backing up the e-mail directory tree before installing 
kdenetworks.  In my case, I found that I could recover the situation by 
installing replacing kdenetworks3-3.1.1 with the 3.0.3 version in the KDE 
3.1.1 installation, deleting the wrecked e-mail directory tree and replacing 
it with the backup made before the installation of kdenetworks3-3.1.1.
Naturally I lost a few messages, but I am back up and running.
