I had the same problem.  It's a complicated chain, but the "fault" turned out 
to be that I had kopete set to auto-start, kopete is set to use the address 
book link for my contacts, I also keep my address book as a groupware folder 
in kmail.  Now, when kopete starts, it asks the addressbook for the names of 
my contacts, which needs the groupware facilities from kmail to get at the 

The only viable solution I have is to not start kopete automatically.  
Pathetic I know, but in the end it's a lot less annoying that trying to 
unstitch the kontact-without-kmail and separate-kmail mess.  In the meantime, 
kopete can easily lose all the address book links and all the names revert to 
the contact-defined name.

I don't envy the KDE developers, this is not an easy problem to solve.
