There were multiple bugs about this but they "should" have been fixed, i have
not switched to 4.7 but on 4.6 i did not have problems with it but others
But sadly i have to agree that the nepomuk/virtuoso search stuff is too
ressource hungry at the moment. There should be a lot of potential to
optimize there, and in the gitMaster branch there is some work going in that

Mh i have not tested that so far since i always configure with the account
wizzard, if it is reproducable can you open a bug at bugs.kde.org for this?

If the kolab ressource only checks for groupware folders in the account that
does not have them i guess it is a following symptom of that bug.

Ok this just sounds really strange. Are you sure about this ? e.g. have
checked with the kolab webinterface.
If you want to help make Kontact a better Kolab Client please use bugs.kde.org
for what you find :)
