    Default kmail failure

    Following the last update bringing kmail 2.0.89 it does not start any more. I get a popup signaling a fatal error : "no read/write permission to your inbox folder". But these permissions have not changed. And even if I move away the Mail folder and try to start kmail I get the same message.

    /home/bz> kmail
    Connecting to deprecated signal QDBusConnectionInterface::serviceOwnerChanged(QString,QString,QString)
    /home/bz> kmail2(10641)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "" with KXMLGUIFactory!
    kmail2(10641)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "" with KXMLGUIFactory!
    kmail2(10641) MailCommon::Kernel::emergencyExit: "KMail encountered a fatal error and will terminate now.

    This kmail version given by YAST is : 4.5.80-261.1

    That's a beta version you're using. KDE 4.6 b1 in fact. Did you mean to?

    I've already submitted a bug report for this problem -
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=655969. You are welcome to add
    to it or vote for it.

    Thanks for this answer. I obviously suspected a bug. So the choice could be to use another mailer, giving time to the kde/kmail developers to fix it, or downgrading to a former version non factory of kmail. I decided to go for the 2nd option, moving back to kmail 1.13.5. And it works again, but nobody likes to go backwards.

    all software from the factory is unreleased beta software and all
    problems with it should be discussed in the appropriate forum, here
    http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...-release-beta/

    which is where software testers discuss such things...please don't
    post help request for released/current software forums...it is not out
    there for folks to try, and try to fix...it is for folks to try and
    log bugs here: http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports

    and, please do not use beta software if you are not willing to post
    the bugs you _will_ find...and, it is a great idea to join the factory
    mailing list to interact directly with the developers

    developers who NEED valid feedback like bug reports or there will be
    no "giving time to the kde/kmail developers to fix it"..
