I'm giving KMail a spin, and I seem to get this problem where I create a

just fine (no crash or anything).

I can confirm this. Happens also when trying to expire a big folder. I
don't do that often so I don't get the crash often. That's why I never
looked deeper into it.

The answer to this is almost certainly the same as that for deleting or moving
huge numbers of files - do them in batches. I find that trying to process
100 messages causes a crash. Processing 50 doesn't. I don't know where the
limit is, but I think I got as far as 70 being OK.
