Description of problem:
KMail 1.5.4 message display cuts in and out when the message display panel is
clicked, or sometimes when you move between messages in the messagelist panel.
Sometimes a partial display is given, sometimes the whole thing cuts to a blank
white or grey background, sometimes it is ok. Click on the message panel enough
times and it will sort itself out and display correctly - but move to the next
message and it begins again.
Does not seem to be related to the message content, attachments, sender, etc.
