There is most definitely a problem somewhere with kmail but appears to
be non-fatal for me

After a reboot when opening an email file a message saying Akonadi
is being started followed by a popup about Nepomuk (attached)

After that kmail still seems to view email files OK which is all I use
it for.

I am using fully update F12
