OK I have re apt-get'd all dependents with 

DEPS=$(apt-cache depends kmail | grep Depends | grep -v "<" | awk '{print 
apt-get install --reinstall $DEPS

Still the same instability ...

So I wiped all filters & kept my bogofilter simple ... :)
Seems a lot more stable, explains why kmail crashed when recieving mail as 
well as manualy filtering.
