this has happened to me.  It always ends up that there is some email
message in my inbox that makes kmail choke.  I've fixed it my editing
the inbox in emacs and removing emails from it until kmail succeeds.

Sometimes I've moved all my email to another directory, and moved it
back in one folder at a time until I found the culprit, then I would
try to find the problem message.

Good luck,
