well I still have this problem in KDE 4.2.3

run "top" in a konsole and
just open the kmail editor and start typing in the middle of a long line: 
"top" reports that xorg uses 80% of CPU !
(yes I mean xorg, not kmail itself)
of course it soon becomes very slow and often continue typing a couple a seconds after your fingers have stopped...

I must say this is really annoying (especially when you have colleagues
peaking at your screen :( ...)

To compare, doing the same typing in an emacs window makes xorg use
about 15%CPU...
