It should be solved when the akonadi server replaces the internal pop
server. I do not know what's the state of kde 4 with respect to this.

This is not a bug in kde, but in famd. And while I was looking for the
bug number in famd, I found that it has been solved recently - probably
only in unstable for now -, after 5 years. Anyway, I am already
using gamin for over a year now (IIRC) and have had no problems with it,
so I see no reason to come back to famd.
