Back to a stable kmail, but it crashed about 2 secs after the first 
start.  With zero indices it took 1:31 to start, but its still using a 
whole core at 100%, and the wc -l is growing by 10 or 20 almost 
everytime I rerun the lsof to get a new count
gene@coyote:~$ lsof |grep Mail|grep .index|wc -l
gene@coyote:~$ lsof |grep Mail|grep .index|wc -l
gene@coyote:~$ lsof |grep Mail|grep .index|wc -l
gene@coyote:~$ lsof |grep Mail|grep .index|wc -l
gene@coyote:~$ lsof |grep Mail|grep .index|wc -l
gene@coyote:~$ lsof |grep Mail|grep .index|wc -l

And theres only about 41 directorys, but 2 of those have 16 and 18 
subdirs so theres not quite 80 dirs all told.
but there are 70147 msgs if I did it right, looks low.

gene@coyote:~$ lsof |grep Mail|grep .index|wc -l

Ladies and Gentlemen, I think we have a bug.
