Bug#321102: kmail looses mails

Package: kmail
Version: 4:3.3.2-3
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Ok here comes some really nasty bug: I'm using two different
dimap-accounts and kmail seems to ramdomly delete some mails or even
a whole folder (this happened at least once).

I cannot (and don't really want ;) reproduce this bug but I think I have
some hints/observations for the case of loosing some mails:

When you move one ore more mails (esp. with attachments) from one folder
to another, kmails shows that the mails have been moved without actually
having them moved: When you now[1] close kmail and start another
instance of kmail on a different machine(!) you can see, that no mail
has been moved. When you now start your old instance of kmail then you
can see how kmail starts to commit the changes.

No problem so far, but what if the user thinks, that his mail has
already been moved (because kmail pretents to) and makes some other
changes on a different machine? I think this is acutualy the reason for
losing sometimes some mails (I've just yesterday lost 3 mails which I
moved from one folder to another).

Ad [1]: You can wait even loger, as far as I've seen, kmail only moves
the mails (at least when you move many or big mails at once) when you
close and restart kmail. 

About the second bug, the lost of a whole dimap-folder, I cannot say
very much, it just happend and I think I don't have to mention, that
this (and the other bug of course) just *must not* happen.

Kind regards
