It must be something Debian-specific, because I started seeing this as well, after last apt-get update. This is especially interesting because it was only a packaging revision with the following changelog:

kdepim (4:3.5.9-4) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Remove changes on libkmime/libemailfunctions/libkdepim that should have
    not been pulled. (Closes: #489095)

kdepim (4:3.5.9-3) unstable; urgency=low

  +++ Changes by Sune Vuorela:

  * Remove dimap warning. kmail is stable now.

  +++ Changes by Modestas Vainius:

  * Add 20_maildir_foldersize_race.diff. It should fix a race between
    slotDirSizeJobResult() and doFolderSize() in kmfoldermaildir.cpp which
    could lead to crashes (Really closes: #469834). NOTE: #469834 was
    hijacked for gpgme issue.

  +++ Changes by Pino Toscano:

  * Recommend kmailcvt for kmail. (Closes: #476147)
  * Drop a paragraph in the kmail description about extra packages, as those
    are dependencies. (Closes: #485418)
  * Make kmailcvt require at least the version of kmail as itself,
    and vice versa. (Closes: #359246)

  +++ Changes by Ana Beatriz Guerrero Lopez:

  * KDE_3_5_BRANCH update (up to r825749): contains a lot of stuff, including:
    - Fix for when replying to address with umlaut and comma, it creates two
      addressees. (Closes: #397635)
    - Hopefully fix when some events are not displayed in korganizer.
      (Closes: #431605)
    - Fix problem that filtering with online IMAP stop after the first message
      had been processed. (Closes: #425739)
    - Translation updates, and ics files updates.

  * Add Conflicts to kdepim-dev with previous knode versions. (Closes: #475351)
  * Update lintian overrides.
  * Update section in doc-base files.
  * Update desktop files.

Well, I guess it wasn't just a packaging update... There seems to be some twiddling with addresses. Do you think this is Debian-specific, or was the bug pulled from upstream?
