1) The xml-files in the .claws-mail folder is not touched by the new
address book so any changes to those files must have been done by
claws-mail itself. The new address book simply reads the files an
import the contacts.
2) No contacts added via the new address book will ever be applied to
the xml-files in the .claws-mail folder.
3) Since the new address book runs outside of claws-mail it will not be
able to make claws-mail crash.
4) The uid attribute in the address element is not used by the new
address book, not even when importing contacts, and as such should
never be reflected by the fact that this attribute is missing.
5) As you can read here:
the author is proofing the bug using only claws-mail and files in the
claws-mail folder. No where is he mentioning anything about the new
address book.

My conclusion therefore is that this is a bug related to the old
address book implementation in claws-mail and therefore the bug should
be opened in the claws-mail bugzilla.
