Nope, but being Kmail and Akonadi/Nepomuk/Strigi related stuff it can be 
a feature to enhance the user experience -to speed it up- so there isn't 
any noticeable delay. Just kidding :-P

Now seriuosly, I wouldn' be surprised that is started on purpose.

Do a quick test: create a user user, login with it and check if the KMail 
"phantom" instance is also running there. If the process is not there, 
search for any ".desktop" file placed in your usual's user ~/.kde4/
Autostart directory. If the process is also there, try to dissable 
akonadi/strigi/nepomuk and retry.
