[SLE] KIO_SMTP Spins out of control

Hi Folks,

I have been seeing lots of instances of KMail failing to finish sending email. 
The 'Outbox' shows email still unsent and the lower right corner of KMail 
shows an 'in-progress' Bar and a 'percentage'. TOP shows KIO_SMTP burning 
roughly 50% CPU forever. When I go to KMail and tell it to put the email in 
the 'outbox' to trash TOP still shows KIO_SMTP burning 50%. When I close 
KMail the KIO_SMTP is still spinning. I have to 'kill' the spinning thread 
and re-start KMail.

Now, interestingly, the email usually is actually sent!

Can anyone help out? Anyone having similar probs?

p.s. SUSE 8.2 KDE 3.1.x KMail 1.5.1
