Are you using Kontact with IMAP and GMAIL in disconnected mode? I am, and
have not had a single crash. When I wasn't using it in disconnected mode I
had all sorts of problems, mainly due to the amount of email I have.

Same here, though from time-to-time I see the little bugger pop up without
me doing anything, usually right after booting, give or take a few minutes
of course.

What chipset is in your laptop? I am using Intel chipsets in all of my
systems and never once saw a slower boot up than a VM and my sound has
always worked. Even suspend works :)
