I'm seeing this in KMail resp., more specifically, in KMail's new mail 
composer. It's indeed pretty annoying.

My guess is that someone added a corresponding debug statement to KMail 
to track down some bug and then forgot to remove it again before pushing 
the fix. I suggest filing a bug for KMail, but it's possible that it 
will be closed immediately because it has already been fixed for the 
next version KMail/Kontact (which will be based on Qt5/KF5).
