I've wandered way too far beyond what is deemed fit and proper and kmail has taken
it upon itself to reorganise all my kmail configurations, remove my mail filters
and create threaded mail folders which also conveniently containerise my mail
according to the time on earth at time of arrival.
My offense was probably seting up a script called from /usr/bin/startkde which
changes my ~/.kde between kde3 and kde4 dependinging on which version is
installed on Slack system loaded, either 12.2 (stable) or /current (beta).
Besides /kab, /kabc, and konquerors bookmarks.xml nothing else was copied over to
the kde4 ./kde except share/apps/kmail and the share/config/ kmail .rc's.
Happily my kde3 .kde is intact so everything is still good there and that's where
I'm writing from, on KDE-3.5.10 on the brink. I'll start a new thread .... matter
