I didn't think of 'fetchmail' as an email _client_. you don't use it 
to read email, you use it to fetch email via pop or something.

I thought the original suggestion then wasn't to _replace_ kmail with 
fetchmail but to have kmail read the mail fetchmail has downloaded.

perhaps I misunderstand.

I have no idea if it would solve the problem - I haven't read the bug 
report.
