Bug#271392: kmail: POP3 message retrieval stops working after 1-2 days

Package: kmail
Version: 4:3.3.0-2
Severity: normal

I have the bad habit of leaving my KDE session open, at times for days. Since 
KDE 3.3 was introduced, I've noticed twice that KMail stopped retrieving my 
messages after being open for a day or two -- both automatically, and 
manually (i.e. pressing the "check mail" button does nothing).

I found that quitting (both the application and the mail-notification applet) 
and restarting KMail does not help. Shutting down and restarting the KDE 
session did help. When I checked deeper, I found that some kmail process 
stayed alive after I quit KMail; killing it and restarting kmail also fixed 
the problem. So I have an easy, expensive workaround which makes me feel like 
I'm in Windows (log out and log back in), and a cheap workaround which 
requires killing processes manually.
