Bug#360291: Freezes on startup after indexing maildir, before displaying main window - narrowed down to kmailrc

Package: kmail
Version: 4:3.5.1-1
Severity: important

KMail crashed when clearing several thousand messages from the local Trash
maildir folder. I haven't able to start KMail since the crash, since it
freezes and eats 100% CPU on startup. I narrowed down this in time: KMail
indexes maildir folders (index files are regenerated if deleted), then eats
100% CPU before displaying it's main window. No disk activity during the
freeze. The kmail process can be killed with normal SIGTERM: killall kmail

I narrowed down this further. I've backed up my maildir folder and ~/.kde,
then deleted the contents of my mailbox. KMail regenerated the default maildir
structure, then freezed up. Then the maildir is restored and the
~/.kde/share/apps/kmail folder is deleted. KMail freezes again regardless of
the deleted configuration files. After deleting ~/.kde/share/config/kmailrc
it did not freeze again, just started to reconfigure itself and asked the
usual user-specific post-installation questions.

I guess kmail is freezing due to an unusal value/syntax in it's kmailrc.
I'm going to attach my kmailrc to this bug as additional information after
submiting this report.

Thanks for your help, Viktor
