I can confirm this issue. At first I thought that it was the automatic spell 
checking, but the issue remains after spell checking is disabled. It happens 
on my laptop SuSE 10.1, KDE 3.5.7, but not on my desktop PC (same OS/KDE).

Somehow I can't see how typing a message should be involved in network 
communication slowing it down. Besides, I don't think I have any problems 
with the network traffic.

Additionally, it seems that the problem occures more often when the mail is 
longer and the CPU goes 100%.
