Relatedly, I'm suddenly seeing very slow running in KMail/Kontact. 
Specifically, on startup when it downloads my e-mail from 1 POP3 and 1 IMAP 
accounts, it's essentially semi-functional for as long as half an hour while 
applying the filters. It typically burns about 20-25% CPU, and seems to really 
hammer the disk. It's not hitting the swap - we'd be looking at having well 
over a GB of RAM spare.

The only thing worse than e-mail disclaimers...is people who send e-mail to 
lists complaining about them
