Major problems I've had in the past:
* Encryption issues
* IMAP issues (which could cause crashes on anything related to the
storage/retrieval/moving of emails)
They've been mostly fixed in 3.4 though, I think. What I *don't* think has
been fixed is an annoying intolerance of a full filesystem: KMail will just
die on startup if your disk is full.
From the way you say that the problem is intermittent, I'm guessing it's not a
full HD, unless you're somehow filling and regaining the free space often.
Unless you're using IMAP, all I can suggest is to check the bug reports, and
if that fails, try to narrow it down more.
