Problems with KDE 3.1. KMail's OpenGPG and S/MIME warnings about some GPG messages

I'm havingsome problems with the KMail that comes with KDE 3.1

Some things are just preference (I hate the new "columns"  for showing how 
many messages/read messages you have) but others are more serious...

As best I can tell, outgoing GPG is still working fine. However when I click
on a message that uses PGP/GPG to view it, I get a dialog box as follows:

Problem: OpenPGP plug-in was not specified.
Use Setting -> COnfigure Kmail -> Security dialog to specify the plug-in or
ask your system administrator to do that for you.

After telling it ok I am able to see the message, but, apparently the mesages 
it's GPG signing (or something).

I get a similar error less often about the S/MIME plugin.

Anyone else having this problem? What's the solution, where do I get teh
precompiled plugins?

I actually I don't get this message on all GPG using messages. The ones that
I do get it on have no apparent GPG "stuff" that I can see after clicking "ok" 
on the warning.

Humorously enough, most if not all of the messages that give me the OPenGPG or 
S/MIME warning are on the KMail developer's list :-D

The post rigt above this one "kicker crashes on kde startup" from Jan 
Drugowitsch has the problem described.

The one two above that "Re: [kde] Konqueror Lan Browser not switching to 
proper protocol" from Martin Koller does not have the problem.

Any ideas?
