I think it is related; most of my error messages are the same for kmail.   It 
seems akonadi is nowhere near ready for use.  The bad part is like you I have 
all my contacts and everything I use and depend on everyday tied up and 
unuseable in 12.04.  I still have this old 10.04 distro on and older laptop so 
I can still use kmail, but don't have my later messages available anymore.     
I have not found any fixes for it so far as nothing has worked.
