What exactly do you mean by "amok"? Everything seems fine here but is
there something specific I should look for?
From memory: akonadi couldn't open the database and gave error messages, like
deprecated signals, database crashed unexpectedly... Restarting akonadi
(akonadictl restart) triggered hundreds of warnings, kmail crashing and unable
to display the content of emails. Doing that for more than 15 minutes and
eating all the CPU.
I just had a look into the backup: ./local/akonadi had a size over 32 GB.
According to the suggestion of Axel Braun I switched to PostgreSQL. Right now
the database has a weight of ca. 5 GB, but I doubt that it has digested the
archive of the last two decades already. We'll see...
It was a very fortunate decision by the akonadi people to have database and
mails stored on different locations. Nothing got lost.
I installed the newest TW snapshots and all is well again. As long as you
don't read the news.
