Let me add a bit more info to this kmail thread.

I just changed kernels on this machine, from to, 
without the rt.  Kmail always has a cow over to folders indices, so I 
expected to get a message about spam and spam-hold which both get 
touched by external scripts or by me moving messages around, but even if 
a nuke all the index files and then start or restart kmail, it has the 
rebuild done in 15 minutes or so.

But not this time. And lsof |grep index|wc -l shows its gone berzackers: 
gene@coyote:~/PublicA$ lsof |grep Mail|wc -l
gene@coyote:~/PublicA$ lsof |grep Mail|wc -l
gene@coyote:~/PublicA$ lsof |grep index|wc -l
gene@coyote:~/PublicA$ lsof |grep index|wc -l
 And it just keeps growing the number.  So I'm going to stop it, and nuke 
then all. Then restart and time it.

Back later with the results.
