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.
