Well, then, close kontact (with ctrl-W, not just by closing the window), and
start up each of the components directly: kmail, knode, akregator,
korganizer (note, korgac - the reminder daemon starts independently), and
whatever else you have active in kontact. That way you should find which
one is looking for localhost.
