           Summary: IMAP stays running for hours after shutting down KMail
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.13.3
          Platform: Fedora RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: crash
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
        ReportedBy: jmaldrich at yahoo.com

Version:           1.13.3 (using KDE 4.4.4) 
OS:                Linux

I connect to my Fedora 13 machine from work using SSH and VNC. When I leave for
the day, I shut down all the applications, including KMail and then kill the
VNC session by shutting down the VNC server. When I get home and fire up KMail,
more often than not, if I don't make sure that everything is shut down,
including Akonadi, KMail will hang when I compose a new message and go to send
it. I checked just as I was opening KMail tonight, but before I put in my
KWallet password, and IMAP was still running more than 4 hours after I shut
down KMail and VNC.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
Start KMail in a remote desktop session (don't know if it works in anything but
VNC) and then shut it down and bring KMail up locally after waiting an hour. My
configuration includes 2 IMAP accounts and multiple POP3 accounts. Then go to
compose a message.

Actual Results:  
KMail will freeze and be totally unresponsive. You can change between the
composer window and the message list, but cannot change folders in the message

Expected Results:  
KMail should allow me to compose and send a message as normal.

I have multiple POP3 accounts from different providers. I have a Fastmail.fm
account and a SpamCop.net account. Both are IMAP accounts.
