Kontact hanging with KDE 4.4

I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 and today decided to do the upgrade from KDE 4.3.2 to 
4.4. Now I'm having problems with Kontact constantly hanging, I've gone 
through all the tips on Akonadi I could find to sort it, but nothing is 
working so far.

If I start Kontact from Konsole, I get this:
Connecting to deprecated signal
