Kmail stability


I have had the occasional kmail crash under Debian Squeeze however it was rare and easily fixed with:

Code:
rm -rf ~/.kde/share/apps/nepomuk
rm -rf ~/.config/akonadi/
rm -rf ~/.local/share akonadi/                                           
rm -rf ~/.kde/share/config/akonadi-firstrunrc
Followed by a restart. With the recent update to Wheezy things seems to have gotten worse with much more frequent failures to start. When I start kmail from the command line I get:

Code:
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
KGlobal::locale::Warning your global KLocale is being recreated with a valid main component instead of a fake component, this usually means you tried to call i18n related functions before your main component was created. You should not do that since it most likely will not work 
"/usr/bin/kmail(12706)" Soprano: "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown - The name org.kde.nepomuk.services.nepomukstorage was not provided by any .service files"

"/usr/bin/kmail(12706)" Soprano: "QLocalSocket::connectToServer: Invalid name"
I am not sure if this is just some problem with my system or if this is a known problem with kmail. I would appreciate any advice on how to fix this since I generally like kmail.

This is the version:
Package: kmail
Source: kdepim (4:4.4.11.1+l10n-3)
Version: 4:4.4.11.1+l10n-3+b1
Installed-Size: 28804

Regards,
Stefan

Run it in gdb or some other debugger and file a bug at bugs.kde.org with backtrace.

Do you have a problem if the other-hardly-useful-services are disabled via system settings

Thanks for the reply. By other services, do you mean nepomuk? Can this be disabled without causing any problems in the kde desktop?

Regards,
Stefan

I've had problems with neopmuk, and I turned it off in system settings -> desktop search, and have had no problems with KDE that I can detect. (with neopmuk running, occasionally it would get locked in a loop and peg one of the processors to 100% forever until killed - since turning it off that has not happened. It is a known bug).

Just a follow up - since I have turned off Nepomuk I have not had problems. I have also found that it is a good idea to start kmail before other programs.
