Description p 2005-12-07 10:10:56 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

I connect to a Dovecot IMAP server, over ssl + plain. (same problem with ssl + text and tls + text)
Kmail often crashes at startup, probably after I had problems like the one below. Deleting the imap folder under .kde/share/apps/kmail/ solves the problem, but it keeps coming back.

After a while connections take a long time and suddenly either the mail isn't visible anymore at all, sometimes I get headers only, sometimes message list disappears. Shortly after the problem occurs Kmail crashes.
After a crash it either keeps crashing when I start it up again or I see the message list but no message. Doubleclicking a message gives me only the header.

How can I try to reproduce the error or get more information about what's gone wrong?

I have the impression problems start when I send an email, at least this time it is certainly the case. When I click the arrow in the status bar to see more detailed information about traffic to and from the imap server I see that Kmail is hanging at retrieving the messages from the sent mail folder, at about 18% for what that's worth.

Some time later I get:
The connection to the server xxx.xxxxxxxx@example.com was unexpectedly closed or timed out. It will be re-established automatically if possible.

After that I can click any of the folders on the left, none give me any information, although I can tell by the detailed status popping up and down that the client is still connecting to the folders I select.

Some more information the reporter gave me:
Problems started when I installed kde 3.5, back in november. I have been 
installing all subsequent updates from the suse kde updates server 
hoping that the problem would go away.
I also attached a crash backtrace, maybe it rings a bell for you or one 
of the developers.

If all this isn't the way things should go I can understand, but can you 
point me in the right direction?
I don't know how to get more detailed information since the problems 
leading up to that crash are very erratic, but I really desperately 
would like to get this out of the way.

Removing the .lock file and imap directory resolve the error temporarily 
but depending on the sun, moon and other heavenly bodies it sooner or 
later crashes again.
