I have same situation, open Konsole with 10 or more  sessions,
Konqueror for web browser and Kmail. After a day or more idle, Konsole
little bit sluggish and i've to close Konqueror because eating system
ram 100Mb just to open 2 website in tab.. duh...
After I close Konqueror, Konsole running better but not much :-)

Off topic, whenever Kmail run for fetching to POP server, it's eat
50%-90% of processor resource, is that normal ?
