I tried to strace and had a log of 22Mb in about 2Min. for me it first
showed nothing,
but perhaps somebody knows a little more:

At the end its frozen with the following continuing for ever:

6019 write(4,
";\3\5\0003\4\340\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0z\0\20\0;\3\5\0\ 207\7"..., 448) = 448
6019 ioctl(4, FIONREAD, [0]) = 0
6019 gettimeofday({1127982709, 395252}, NULL) = 0
6019 select(17, [3 4 5 6 8 14 16], [], [], {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
6019 gettimeofday({1127982709, 395354}, NULL) = 0
6019 nanosleep({0, 100000}, NULL) = 0
6019 ioctl(4, FIONREAD, [0]) = 0
6019 gettimeofday({1127982709, 396933}, NULL) = 0
6019 select(17, [3 4 5 6 8 14 16], [], [], {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
6019 gettimeofday({1127982709, 397027}, NULL) = 0
6019 nanosleep({0, 100000}, NULL) = 0
6019 ioctl(4, FIONREAD, [0]) = 0
6019 gettimeofday({1127982709, 398928}, NULL) = 0
6019 select(17, [3 4 5 6 8 14 16], [], [], {0, 0}) = 0 (Timeout)
6019 gettimeofday({1127982709, 399021}, NULL) = 0
6019 nanosleep({0, 100000}, NULL) = 0
6019 ioctl(4, FIONREAD, [0]) = 0

In between there were things like this:
6019
access("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
W_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such f
ile or directory)
6019
access("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such f
ile or directory)
6019 access("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config", W_OK) = 0
6019
lstat64("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
0x84c2ef8) = -1 ENOENT (No
such file or directory)
6019
stat64("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
0x84c2ef8) = -1 ENOENT (No s
uch file or directory)
6019
lstat64("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
0x84c2ef8) = -1 ENOENT (No
such file or directory)
6019
stat64("/homelocal/oko/.kde/share/config/kresources_kabc_egroupwarerc",
0x84c2ef8) = -1 ENOENT (No s
uch file or directory)

Then I thought it might come from any configured xmlrpc ressource. I had
a connection to
an egroupware server running in former times:

keppler:~# dpkg -S egroupwarewizard
kdepim-wizards: /usr/lib/kde3/libegroupwarewizard.so
kdepim-wizards: /usr/bin/egroupwarewizard
kdepim-wizards: /usr/share/man/man1/egroupwarewizard.1.gz
kdepim-wizards: /usr/lib/kde3/libegroupwarewizard.la

And finding:
~/.kde$ less share/config/kresources/contact/stdrc

With lines with:
XmlRpcUrl=http:/egroupware/xmlrpc.php

I deleted the whole block. And kmail is now working.

I hope this will be useful for somebody. I will leave the bug open
because thats
impossible to solve for any common user!

Oliver
