kmail / kontact segfaults - leap 42.3

Stakanov Schufter
I have a problem with my kmail from Leap 42.3
One year ago I found a bug reported against the 42.3 version of leap at the
kde bugzilla. Now what is happening:
when you check for mail, the program will hang in the process (pop3)
when you close the program and restart it, the first time it will segfault. I
have not been able to get any backtrace although I have all debug packages
installed and I also tried from console or with gdb. Nothing. Just a segfault.
Then, when you restart, you will see that part of older mails appear as unread
and duplicated.
Run akonadictl fsck and you will see that a lot (about 690 items are marked as
"no RID and dirty" (so no remote ID), about 60 are without RID and clean and
three collections are listed "without RID".
Data loss seem to occur, sometimes messages that did disappear do reappear
again (as unread) and this even if they were already in the range of
"scadenza" scheduled for being erased. But as they are unread, the date limits
of unread messages apply of course.
Filters seem not to be hit but the retrieval of pop3 mail is (in the sense
that the accounts hang.
I tried to clear the cache of the folders hit by this, I tried to reinstall
forcefully all packages.
Any idea what this could be? Any way of repairing it?
I have an automatic archive that more or less shows the same size so the
messages that are without RID should be there and I would be able to restore
what I am loosing (just in case). The bug I found is more then a year old (and
looks at 5.8. But I am seriously in doubt that anybody is interested in KDE of
such an old version so any report would be closed anyway. So in the moment I
am searching for a feasible workaround until leap 15 brings a bit of fresh
air.
So thank you for all suggestions.
