Hmm, I did an compact all folders by hand before the exit and a second compat
all folders takes almost no time.  But when I exit I still see these minutes
of full CPU usage and the HD led is not flashing.    Nevertheless just to be sure
I switched off compact all folders on exit and will exit kmail in two days ;)

Same here but I have enough of mem ;)

Let me elaborate what I mean with 'slower'.  After one or two days when I
switch from one very little message to another (e.g. in the folder of this list)
I can watch the folder and message window being redraw.  E.g. 1 s for the msg list
window redraw and 1 s for the message window :(

That makes kmail unusable and it's time to exit.  After compact all folders manually
I exit kmail.  kmail window vanishes almost immediately but top shows that kmail
continues to run for some minutes in the background comsuing CPU time.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
