This is Kmail shutting down

kmail is in TDEPIM - perhaps it is best to open a bug ticket first.
Check the file permissions on the file and tree, but when you write file
gets modified, it shouldn't be a problem

If you want to debug compile with Debug option and set markers. Look into
bugs - there are few related to kmail.

you will be looking at
kmail/kmkernel.cpp:  // this shares the kmailrc parsing too (via
TDESharedConfig), and reads values from it
kmail/kmkernel.cpp:    mySelf->mConfig =
TDESharedConfig::openConfig( "kmailrc" );

Before doing this have a look into the newer versions provided by Slavek,
perhaps the problem is fixed, because I am using the development (14.1)
version and I can not reproduce the problem.
I do "Settings" -> "Create Filters"
then after creating some rule I apply/ok
I closed/opened Kmail and filter rule is still there. I even rebooted and it
is still there.
So either you have some local problem or it is fixed in 14.1. Check the bugs
around KMail.
