Do you use KOrganizer?  We are finding that there is a problem that sounds the 
same in Fedora.  For some reason Kontact simply will not start if your 
korganizerrc is set to use the monthly view as current.  If that line is 
removed Kontact starts normally.  Until this is resolved we have to make sure 
that we don't stay in month-view when we shut kontact down.  HTH
