for me, since i started to use openSUSE 12.2 with KDE 4.8.3, all
akonadi/nepomuk/strigi related problems have stopped -- at least until
now. i don't think it depends so much on the distro version, or even the
minor version of KDE 4.8.x, but that i started with a new $HOME this time.
previously i had been carrying most of my configuration with me through
minor & major versions, but during oS 12.1 i wasn't able to get
nepomuk/strigi to work properly. was getting strange errors that strigi
couldn't be started due to three different possible reasons, and whatever
i tried (new ~/.kde4, ~/.local, ~/.config), it just wouldn't work. on the
other hand, for a new user account it did work, so i knew that i had
something messed up in my config.
didn't find this important enough to start bisecting my whole $HOME, so i
just waited for the next major version upgrade of openSUSE, and this time
i started with a completely fresh $HOME, and voila, everything works
great. no lost mails, those i read stay read, no duplicates, and what not.
akonadi works well with google contacts & calendar, so far i couldn't find
anything that doesn't work.
of course, it helps that i store my mail in a local dovecot server, so
kmail would have to try really hard to mess those up.
there have been quite a few major changes to all those interconnected
libraries, and i think it's asking too much to provide a faultless upgrade
pass through all this. unless you tried this before, i'd suggest to start
with a clean configuration and see if & how things work now, with KDE
4.8.3. (not necessarily with your real user, but creating a new one should
do the trick, if i'm right.)
