thanks for sharing, experiences like this are always interesting.

Creating an issue for this is certainly a good idea.

From your description I take it that you can reproduce, though no reliably.
Then trying to create good separated issues would be cool.
You might even try to reproduce some of them without a dimap account (and a 
Kolab Server) which would raises the chances for upstream KDE to care about 
it. Note that KDE goes to the Opensync direction, 
maybe that is also something to look into.
