Doesn't that mean I can only access mails that have been fetched and cached 
on my local disk? I can't access the IMAP server then any more, right? Not 
really a solution.

I'm maintaining a lot of Debian and other mailing list mails through kmail. 
That's pretty high-volume indeed (1000-2000 mails per day). I was 
recommended to install kdepim-dbg and kdelibs-dbg by Sune Vuorela and will 
try that to produce better crash information.
