Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: konversation

I run Kontact as my primary do-everything PIM.  I have come to depend on Kontact wrapping Kmail and Korganizer seamlessly (aside from adding new calendar entries from a ics file directly from the web).
I use Remote Calendar Files as well as KMail IMAP Groupware for data storage (schedule, journal, contacts, etc...)

When I use Konversation as an IRC client, it reloads itself at startup
(which is ok in my opinion).  When it loads, however, it seems to start
an instance of Kmail in the background.  When I start up Kontact and go
to Email, an external Kmail instance pops up, and I can't get Kmail to
embed in Kontact until I type "killall kmail" from the command-line.
Problem is that the integration doesn't work properly when Kmail is
running solo, and often Kontact has issues with the KMail Groupware

In my humble opinion:
* Kmail and Kontact need to continue to improve their interoperability (if I have Kontact open, just make Kmail automatically work right and embed inside of Kontact)
* Konversation needs to lose the ties to Kmail
* Hopefully (ancillary, but very important) Kontact/Korganizer will learn to accept new calendar entries from the web sites like NWA.com when I click on the "Add to Outlook" link.

Thank you for all your hard work.  I have come to depend on this
software because I like it so much... otherwise I'd use something like
Tbird or <ack> use my Mac.
