Restarting, crashes etc. are very RARE cases. Bad things happen sometimes. You 
may argue that releasable == perfect, but the world itself is not perfect. The 
most important thing that there is nothing critical or grave about kmail.

Questioning suitability for release is declaring that kmail has problems which 
render it completely unusable for most people. You mentioned a bit annoying 
problems (most of which happen to be your pet bugs), but they do not render 
kmail unusable for others. My reaction was to your statement about "keeping it 
from testing", not about your opinion which you are obviously entitled to.
