However... Your first suggestion regarding a relationship between nepomuk and 
kmail seems to still hold. After switching of the cache and then configuring

After disabling and rebooting then enabling and rebooting kmail continued to 
crash when I replied.

I disabled nepomuk and rebooted, started kontact, hit reply and I was able to.
