I just reproduced this bug.
But i agree with Josh Metzler about the severity:
<jdmetz> I'm not sure it is grave, though, as I think it only applies to people using IMAP with a courier-imap server
<jdmetz> that isn't "most people"
If you rename your file $HOME/.kde/share/config/kmailrc as kmailrc.old,
you will be able to start kmail again, but all your account info will be
lost. Basically, you will have to configure all your accounts in kmail
