Could the system find and use components from different versions of KDE and/or 
E.g. stuff from the stable packages and some things from the beta?

Other than that you could probably try this command;
mysql_install_db --datadir=$HOME/.local/share/akonadi/db_data/

While I don't think that the creation of the database is a problem in your 
case, it has been proved to be useful for quite some other users with database 
related problems, so it can't hurt to mention it.
