This might happen if your Internet connection is flacky. kio_imap4 is known 
not to recover if your Internet connection was cut for some time (e.g. TCP 
problems). You have to restart kio_imap4 like

close kmail
$ killall kio_imap4
(wait until all kio_imap4 processes die, maybe even use $ killall -9 
start kmail

That's normal.

What about other mail clients? FWIW, I'm writing this answer from kmail 
connected to my account via IMAP. So the bug does not everyone and I'm pretty 
sure the problem is the one I described above. Marking appropriately.
