I've noticed that Kontact sometimes fails to shut down properly and then when you run it again it won't start because it thinks one is already running. 

You can tell if a kontact is running by typing 'ps -ae | grep kontact'. If you get some output back, you have a 'dead' kontact.
Try 'killall kontact' from a terminal and start kontact again.
