I've been following this advice,
and I've had no problems with KMail2 for over 24 hours now (Touch wood),
which is probably an all-time record.
(I always used to start reading as soon as the number of new messages
came up.)

I've also stopped getting the message
(said to be from Plasma Desktop Shell) 
"Unknown error. (Unable to fetch item from backend)"
whenever I re-boot or login after hibernation.

Could these be related?
Or has there been some relevant yum-update since the enormous update
a few days ago?
