Hello. For the last couple months (since i upgraded Debian from "stable" 
to "testing" and thus KDE switched to 4) KMail has had an annoying bug 
where slashes in plain-text e-mail cause the text to be displayed 
italicized, asterisks cause it to be bold, and underscores cause 
underlining. Naturally, plain-text should be rendered as plain-text and 
not mangled or interpreted in any way. I haven't been able to find a way 
to work around this bug. Any ideas?
