The libc is not that problem. The major problem is, that kmail in sid is
unusable in the moment. However the sid version of KDE3.1.1 is compiled
with two different libraries than the original KDE packages. This is
because the original KDE packages conflict with Gnome2 in sid. So, if you
don't use any Gnome2 apps, use the original packages from the KDE mirror
instead of the sid version. If you use any Gnome2 packages, wait until the
package maintainer has fixed the bug in kmail.
