Let me forward you a question I got on the bug:

  This would appear to have security implications since I imagine if an email
  were sent to a KMail recipient which was crafted in this same way it would
  crash KMail? If this is likely true a CVE should be requested from MITRE via so that other distros etc can ensure they ship
  this patch too.

What do you think about this?
