I've run kmail from cli and just got these messages after selecting a

Yes, that's indeed the well-known and long-standing nouveau crash.

Uninstalling Mesa-nouveau-dri should help, or installing the proprietary
nvidia driver.

Thanks Wolfgang. I thought i had done this a long time ago, not sure how it
got back there.

Well, as discussed in another subthread, we had/have a patch in QtWebEngine
(used by kmail to display mails) to prevent those crashes since over a year.
That patch didn't work any more since the update to Qt 5.9.2 though, so that's
why you had this problem (again) now.

A fix has been submitted to Tumbleweed already meanwhile, so you should be
able to reinstall Mesa-dri-nouveau after the next libqt5-qtwebengine update.

Not having it installed will disable hardware accelerated OpenGL in general.
This also means that the desktop will be slower.
So probably a good idea to install it again then, if it doesn't cause you
other problems. ;-)
