I can confirm that bug for the SuSE Factory 10.3 (upcoming Beta3). With the update to the following packages 
 - kdelibs3-3.5.7-56 
 - kdebase3-3.5.7-66 
the problem was introduced on my system, too.
 I switched on fetching mails on startup. On trying to fetch mails manually I get a messagebox: 
   Could not login to _server_. The password may be wrong. 
   The Server said: "Mailbox '_username_' is busy". 
 Within a few minutes I got 55 processes kio_pop3, which grows further. This slows down system extremeley and makes it unusable. New mails are only fetched after startup, after that POP3 fetching is locked up. 
 Furthermore, Kontact with KMail crashes now quite regularly and makes other weird things like marking existing messages with a valid subject in the message list panel temporarily as 'No subject', says something about a locked archive by a second instance on shutdown and similar things.
