erm... not so certain actually... I created a to-do entry from an email, this 
added a binary attachment to the to-do entry.

luckily the .ics files i found under /home/$user/.kde/share/apps/korganizer 
are human readable. So I found the violating entry, and deleted it. 
Everything is fine again.

Thanks a lot for taking care of this nonetheless...
