Concerning my comment #19:

I found a way to reproduce this (KMail/Kontact hangs using 100% CPU) even if the IMAP server works all right, but only with the version KMail/1.9.6 (enterprise 0.20070907.709405) that comes with Kubuntu 7.10. The current SVN version (revision 796375) seems to work OK.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open KMail settings and change the password of a receiving IMAP account (Google Mail in my case) to something wrong. Close the settings dialog. KMail then tries to check mail using the wrong password, opens an Error dialog (click OK) and an Authorization dialog (click Cancel). Close Kontact.

2. Open Kontact. You get an error message about the failed Authorization. Click OK and then Cancel in the Authorization Dialog.

3. Kontact hangs and has to be killed manually.

But as I said, the current SVN version works OK. When I open Kontact and click Cancel in the Authorization dialog prompting me for the correct password, I get the same dialog once more, but clicking Cancel again ends this, and I can use Kontact normally (except for the account with the wrong password).
