The same thing happened to me. I have a different relocation error, but kmail still won't start. I am speculating that my problem happened when I updated libc6, although I don't know for sure. I am waiting until all of 3.1.4 gets checked into unstable and I will upgrade then.
I guess that this is the risk we take when running mixed versions, not everything always works. In reality, I am very impressed how few problems there really are. It is a reflection of the overall coordination, policy decisions, and implementation of the volunteers that package things.
