That's a funny thing to write in a message sent to two mailing lists :)

No proper fixes, but:
If X11 works fine for you the simplest solution is to accept that Wayland still has some way to go ;) and use good old X11.
Does Kontact freeze too if you launch it in X11 mode (`-platform xcb`) under Wayland? Assuming you also have a Gnome DE installed, does Kontact also freeze if you launch it in Wayland mode under a ditto Gnome session?
In case you want to report a bug, the most straightforward and (a priori) helpful way would be to send an ABORT signal to Kontact after it has frozen:
%> killall -ABRT kontact
this should launch DrKonqi which should then allow you to file a ticket with a backtrace showing where the process is hanging.
