ignored kmail crash reports.

Greetings all;

Are you send those to /dev/null? I've sent a whole bunch of them.

These crashes always seem to be preceded by a couple days of a kmail 
session burning up a core of 4 cores, bouncing to the next available 
core, at 99 to 100% at 15 second or so intervals.

These seem to be related to kmail finding trash files in its database, 
causing problems while re-indexing. I have two folders which are 
subfolders with a given years messages manually sorted into that years 

When I relaunch kmail after one of these crashes, I am getting advisories 
that so-and-so has an index problem, and its generally the top level 
folder, and 2 or 3 of its subfolders that are named.  And the older 
folders are slowly being emptied, as in messages are disappearing 
despite having no expiry set up.

Can anything be done, or is there something I can check-uncheck 


Cheers, Gene Heskett
