KMail systray icon & Kontact

I recently chose the systray icon option in KMail and I found it cool and
useful. I always use KMail from inside Kontact and the systray icon has
brought me a problem. When I close Kontact, the systray icon remains there
and an instance of kontact keeps running, although the window is not shown.
If I click the icon on the systray, Kontact, as expected, appears almost
immediately. So far so good. But if I accidentally try to open another
instance of Kontact (e.g. by clicking my Kontact button on kicker) it shows
me a dialog telling that another instance of Kontact is already running and
gives me two options: "Continue" or "Exit". If I choose "Exit" both instances
of Kontact close, and I end up with no Kontact running, and if I choose
"Continue" another instance of Kontact starts and I get two icons for KMail
in the system tray. In that situation, if I close any Kontact instance, all
the other ones close too, and shortly after that, a KCrash "black bomb"
window opens. Has anyone seen a similar behaviour?
I'm using Kontact 1.0.1, KMail 1.7.1 in KDE 3.3.1, in Debian
