It's pretty dificult to reproduce (I wasn't able to do it for the last hours), 
but I must correct myself:
I cancel the SMTP transmission with the button, because the connection to the 
server breaks down. The connection to the MTA is not done directly, but the 
connection is redirected through another application. If the application 
crashes or cuts the connection (closing the socket), KMail doesn't notice 
this (only after a timeout). As I don't want to wait until it times out, so I 
cancel the transmission.
But: kio_smtp doesn't stop.
Unfortunatly I cannot reproduce this :(

I hope this information might help you helping me ;)
