FWIW, database-related "malfunctionality" such as this is one reason I 
decided to dump kmail and the rest of kdepim entirely, here.  Switching 
my mail archive, address book, and mail filters over to claws-mail wasn't 
easy, but it was worth it, for sure, and the worst I get in a crash is a 
few read messages showing up as unread, again, if it hadn't yet saved 
that status.  YMMV, but claws-mail was a better solution for me anyway, 
and with kde's color scheme exported to gtk apps, I've been very happy 
with the results.  Not as integrated with kde, but I'll take actually 
working over integrated, any day.
