Well, I do remember spending hours switching from kmail to thunderbird
in the past because a KDE update in Fedora broke IMAP support and it
stayed broken for quite sometime. Also many of the KDE apps after a
rewrite tend to be quite close to alpha/beta releases for a while rather
than general releases, Amarok being a good example. It is sometimes
pretty tricky to judge.
