I, of course, agree with the above general statement.

However, considering the specifics, I do have:

apt -s autoremove kmail

However, one can notice something weired:
removal of kde-standard and task-kde-desktop...

And, yes, it might be that on a second run of it, I could have my entire 
system removed...

There is something there, or so it seems.
Is it related to Kmail in any way?...
