Bug#300614: kmail: deletes emails when manually applying a filter for all messages in inbox manually
severity 300614 important
retitle 300614 kmail crashes when filter applied manually on multiple mails
This bug is known by upstream, and they think it likely that it is fixed in
KDE 3.4. However, they don't know exactly when or where the fix was
committed, making backporting extremely difficult.
However, it is important to note that this is the first and only report of
this problem that mentions data loss, and it seems likely that the data
loss was related to the power-cycling of the box. The bug itself is merely
a kmail lockup, and does not, insofar as the many other reporters of this
problem have mentioned, cause data loss. Hence we are lowering the severity
Of course, we (the Debian KDE team) will continue to watch this issue and if
a solution becomes available, will ensure that it reaches Sarge.
