Kontact 4.11.2 generates two mails when responding to an event (was: Kontact 4.11.2 sends mail as organiser when responding to invitations)

Ok, upon closer inspection, this is even more bizarre than I thought:

- I receive an invitation (from an e35-KMail, in case that matters)
- I click "Accept" (or "Decline")
- I get a message saying that an e-mail has successfully been sent - and 
indeed, the organiser does receive the response!
- Then the selection dialogue for the calendar I want to put the event in pops 
up (I have three calendars, all Kolab V2)
- The moment I select a calendar, I get another message stating that an e-mail 
could not be sent due to the sender not being allowed
- The outbox now contains a *copy* of the *original* event invitation (with my 
status correctly been shown as "Accepted" or "Declined" with - obviously - the 
sender/from being the organiser.

I have disabled - for now - the "Delete invitation mails after replay has been 
sent", but that does not seem to make any difference.

Any ideas?
