Not really.  kmail is pretty stable.  I'm pretty sure there are a few people 
having trouble that can be "flaky as heck", but if they're too lazy to file 
bugs, the bugs are not likely to get fixed.  If the bugs were common, and 
easy to reproduce, they'd get fixed.  It's the ones that only affect a few 
people that never get fixed.
