Memory usage improvements for KDEPIM 4.11

Filed under
KDE

The other day I went to buy a DDR stick but the shop was closed so the only solution was to sit down and fix some memory hungry applications.

These will be in 4.11:

* Fixed a bug where maildir resource would use 1 or 2GB when importing large folders.

* Fixed a bug where mixedmaildir resource would also use 1 or 2GB.

* akonadiserver wasn't clearing uneeded query caches. Saved 65MB here.
