Yeah, sorry for from my translation from italian localization to english. But 
you got it right! :D 

How many times does it happen to you? To me, only this morning, more or less12 
times. Very frequent.

Yup! I realy hope so, and the relationship with akonadi seems to be confirmed 
by an error msg l got before:

"Unable to fetch item from backend (collection -1): Unable to retrieve item 
from resource: recuperato elemento non valido" (<- the last sentence meaning 
"retrieved not valid element" ).

So,if developers are already commited to this, I don't think would be useful 
to file another bug.. But I don't know, maybe one more feedback is appreciated.

Interesting. I don't know Mageia but this bug affect all the distros with KDE 
I tried until now. Not very pleasant UX, especially for newcomers!
