Description of problem:
When kmail is told to download e-mail it does so, but then crashes with 
signal 8 (SIGFPE).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect via PPP (kppp) to ISP (attglobal.net or nocharge.com)
2. Bring up kmail.
3. Click on "download e-mail" button.

Actual Results:   Kmail reports "preparing connection to 
pop4.attglobal.net" for tens of seconds, sometimes switching an e-mail 
address in the bottom bar (and I can see the e-mails appear in the 
right-hand pane), then it reports a crash -- signal 8 (SIGFPE).   The 
e-mails that come in are rather short, several dozens of lines of text (and 
they remain on the server machine.) The same failure occurs with two 
different accounts (but both on attglobal.net.)

Expected Results:  It should have downloaded e-mail and then let me read 
it, without crashing. :-)

Additional info:

I connect to my ISP, bring up kmail and click on the button to 

I reported the bug to KDE.   http://bugs.kde.org/db/35/35642.html
But the reply from Marc Mutz (mailto:mutz@kde.org) is:
  "Tell Redhat not to use objprelink in their RPM's. It's buggy."

(Severity set to "High" because it's a crash.  In terms of value of RH7.2 
to me, personally, it's also high though I realize others' mileage may

it's not reproduceable in current release.
