           Summary: kmailcvt often locks up when importing maildir
           Product: kmail
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: psychonaut nothingisreal com

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

I find that kmailcvt often hangs when importing maildir directories.  It seems to do this only for certain directories.  Perhaps the directories are corrupt, but even if so, kmailcvt should be more error-tolerant, at minimum issuing an error message instead of locking up.

I will attach a sample maildir which always causes kmailcvt to hang.
