No, because I am using kmail with gmail on my home machine that still
uses KDE 3.5.10 and everything works fine there.  I don't get the
messages at all and mail comes in fine.  I really want to move that
machine to KDE 4.x, but not until my stuff works reliably.  I thought
that time had come.

The problem started when I installed what I thought to be a "full" kde
on this machine.  Before that I was only running the libraries
necessary for kmail and k3b and amarok.  Sound on Amarok also seems to
be broken now.  Maybe I will remove KDE and reinstall it via the
kubuntu-desktop package.
