No, ~/incoming. And not just in my homedir, but also for other users.
It is fixed now, by a reboot (*gasp*). Only reloading KDE didn't help, 
changing runlevels didn't either. But after the system was rebooted, 
everything was back to normal.
My theory is that it was somehow caused by a temporary X file, that got wiped 
after the reboot. It's a sucky theorie, but I the only other thing I can 
think of is a freaky kernel bug.
It's gone now, so unless somebody else suffers from the same problem, forget 
about it.
