KMail mail check failure

in the last 6-8 months I have been having occasional failure of mail check 
both interval and manual. 

The symptom is the bottom right progress bar shows constant movement with no 
percentage given and no new mail.Workaround is close kmail, reopen it go to 
Settings - Configure Mail - Accounts - Receiving - Modify - Apply (without 
editing anything) - OK and it downloads and will do so for 1~30 days and the 
same thing happens again.

Doesn't matter which of 4 POP3 accounts I select to (not) modify - all then 

Just open/close does not fix it nor TDE exit/new session or reboot. Machine 
normally runs 24/7

Has persisted through a complete machine replacement (with the same 
~.trinity/share/apps/kmail/mail directory and filters

This is with KMail 1.9.10 (enterprise35.0.20100827.1168748) (Using Trinity on Debian 7 reported by synaptic as kmail-trinity The same setup had been working fine for some 
months beforehand

Any ideas ?
