I don't know where the problem come from, but I've the same problem and I
fix it with a simple step:
right click on " [Gmail] " folder -> properties -> uncheck all options
("Include this folder in mail checks"...)

If the properties menu is disable, then this folder is already managed by
kmail as special folder, so it's another " [Gmail] " folder that give you
this problem.

Hope this can help
