Description H.H. 2009-11-18 17:46:53 UTC
Version:           1.12.2 (using 4.3.3 (KDE 4.3.3) "release 1", KDE:43 / openSUSE_11.1)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (i686) release

While receiving mails, the kmail gui does respond very bad. gui events seem to be blocked too much. I had no such problems with kmail/kde3

The KMail version in KDE 4.3.3 is 1.12.3. Please fix your installation and reopen the report if you're able to reproduce the issue with the correct packages.

I now have 1.12.3, problem is still present.

I can describe it a bit more specific now:
when I receive multiple mails (pop), kmail "hangs" at the start/end/between receiving two mails (so it hangs not while receiving a long attachment).

The gui may not respond for a few seconds in worst case and does not even repaint (put another application window in foreground, the put kmail in foreground again).

Qt-Gui-Event-loop seems not to be "called" often enough on some operations?

Well, looks as a part of the problem that ui and data fetching is not seperated into different threads within kmail. So I think this is a duplicate.
