kontact slows and hogs resource with large(ish) .ics file

I have changed from KDE 3 to KDE 4.1 in openSuse 11.0.
When I import my 441.5 KByte .ics calendar file into kontact, kontact stops responding while hogging up to 96% of system cpu time.
It will eventually sort itself out and start responding, usually in a couple of minutes, but when I change the week viewed it seizes again.
If I uncheck the calendar resource, then it responds quite normally.
My calendar file is on localhost and contains 137 todos and 1147 events.

It is a bit of a show stopper!

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

To update my own post...
I have gone back into 3.5 and archived most of the events. I now have just 228 events and the calendar is responding just fine.
It still begs the question, why does kontact in 3.5 handle 1147 events with no problem but kontact in 4.1 seize up?
