Description Graham Lauder 2010-11-19 22:48:18 UTC
Version:           1.13.5 (using KDE 4.4.4) 
OS:                Linux

Kmail freezes, seemingly randomly for about a minute or so at a time.  Auto save turned off, no difference.  This happens while composing emails.    

Reproducible: Didn't try

OS: Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.34-12-desktop
Compiler: gcc

It is now doing this with increasing frequency, every 5 minutes or so.  This has only started happening since my last update, is there any way I can roll back to an earlier version

I tried reverting to an earlier version of Kontact, but problem continued. 

Turned off KDM and switched to GDM and then ran under Gnome.  The freezing stops.

I get the same behaviour. Kubuntu Maverick with KDE 4.6.1 packages.

As noted in #247624, "akonadictl restart" works. Somewhere in related bugs I have read that suspend might have something to do with this -- I use suspend extensively.
Comment 6 Ivan D Vasin 2011-04-11 21:59:39 UTC
as Jörg Walter pointed out, this looks similar to bug #248026.

Cannot reproduce with KMail2. Open a new report for the kmail2 product if you can reproduce this issue with kdepim > 4.6beta5
