I beg to differ, unless we are talking about something that I'm not quite

In your email advising about the new Claws Contacts, you wrote:

And when I ran it for the first time, it did exactly that. Then I imported my
gmail address info. in vcard format, and those addresses were somehow
appended to my claws-mail addrbook xml file for the 00001 (common
addresses). I did not discover that until last night, in response to
the email related to the Debian bug report. However, all of those addresses
are also in the ~/.contact/xml folder in the common addresses xml file in the
proper format. If you would like, I can email you privately with a copy of
those files.

My claws-mail was working just fine until right after I compiled and used the
Claws Contacts. I suspect that if I had closed it, then re-opened it before
importing the vcard, it would have been done accessing the claws-mail address
book, and none of this would have happened. I don't know.
