I get this.  The kmail people traced it back to being in the kdelibs (or more 
specifically the kio_pop3 code somewhere, I can't remember the details, but I 
think it has been fixed)  Yes it's a pain as the folder counts are never 
right without going into each folder, however functionally it does work 
(although unnerving) it does go and fetch all the emails, saves them to disk 
and deletes them from the server as expected, but fairly regularly crashes 
(sometimes taking other parts of kde with it, but that might just be my 
rather early build of kde 2.1, I should rebuild)
