I see it way too often, and KMail often gets stuck at that point. Usually 
restarting akonadi helps, sometimes going to another message and back helps. 
But those workarounds should not be nessecary. When a mail header is clicked, 
the intention is to view that mail, and KMail should facilitate that, it's 
kind of the most basic job it has :)
