I read your post on Tuesday but it only occurred to me just now how I defeated 
a like problem.  Let me elaborate:  I had been running Gentoo for some months 
& decided, upon a net-admin's advice, to try kubuntu.  I also used the 
same /home as before ...and kmail was doing the self same thing you describe, 
here.  After considerable mucking about I discovered that by deleting 
~/.kde/share/config/kmailrc & allowing the new installation to created its 
own, the prob disappeared.  Of course, I had to recreate all my rules, but at 
least I had a working Kmail.  Turned out the newer version was gagging on the 
old config.

Could it be that simple, or have you already attempted that??
