Have you tried just leaving it for quite some time to see if it stops? If you have lots of emails it might just be doing an initial scan or indexing or something. Heaven only knows what… virtuoso-t is the database backend I think.

Not seeing it with KMail, but I was seeing it in various other situations (like when I plug in a removable hard drive, which it's supposed to ignore but doesn't).

There is a setting somewhere to increase the memory available to it. This helped a little, but not very much. Akonadi is what drove me away from KDE in the end. It's a great concept but doesn't appear to have been properly thought through.

My way to cure it? I bought a Mac. Never looked back. Still use KDE for some things, but I won't go back to it for day-to-day use.
