           Summary: Kontact seems to be running message during start

          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: xlastovi03 quick cz

Version:            (using KDE 3.5.9)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

Kontact should be smarter with displaying this message. It is displayed quite often on my computer and the kontact is in fact not running at the time. Today my KDE - don't know why - started kontact twice and after clicking on start in the message dialog I had two running kontact instances. Kontact should rather detect if it runs by the means of process list or a socket.
  One case I noticed the message occurs is probably after kmail component crash. This probably invokes the message on the next start.
