Because I got the system working perfectly again.  It worked normally using 
kmail and only stopped after that last update.  Perhaps it was not created by 
the update, but that is the only thing that happened at the beginning of the 
problem, and that seemed relevant.

Quite frankly the computer works well excepting for the email problem.  I have 
updated and upgraded several times since the problem happened, so it doesn't 
seem to be repaired like the bug report indicated.

I posted the bug report reply notification today.  I don't know what to do with 
the information and wanted help with that too.  It appeared that my kmail 
problem was a duplicate that had been fixed, but it still doesn't work on my 
box and was not included in any update that I received.  I just now checked to 
make sure.
