Dear René,

Many thanks for helping me along. I might need some more pointers.

I did this from a virtual console using gdb -p <pid> and then ‘continue’ 
within the gdb shell. However, apparently contact does not crash when 
logging out then…

So how do I get kontact to behave as if gdb wasn't there?

Or, is there really no way to interrupt an ongoing logout?
