The bug is this:
emails contain an ID field in the header, usually a combination of a
timestamp + source ip or email address
kmail assumes that this ID is unique, but does a query that can return
multiple results.
It pukes every time duplicate emails are returned and it never recovers
from this status.

I proposed a fairly simple patch to fix this, just select the first result
from the query, and be done with it.
Sadly, the maintainer was unwilling to accept it, and the bug remains open

Usually these duplicates are multiple references to the same email, via
filters, or similar things.
(I have accidentally generated different emails with the same id, while
messing with git-send-email, but that is
an extremely rare edge case and I was doing wrong things out of ignorance
at the time)

I can no longer find which bug report my was attached to. It has been too
long, Sorry.
