Here is the detail I didn't add to the Debian bug report, because it didn't
seem pertinent at the time. 

All I can tell you is that the improperly formatted entries in the 'common
addresses' address book in claws 00001 xml file are clearly from the gmail
vcard import. 

When I originally started the Claws Contacts, I did not have
claws mail open. However, after I imported the vcard and it added all of
those contacts to 'common addresses' I did open claws mail to check its
address book to make sure those entries weren't also in that address book. As
I recall I didn't see them there, so I closed claws again. The next time I
opened claws mail, is when it crashed. I think it had something to do with
the interaction between the two programs, and importing the vcard into Claws
Contacts is the only way those bad entries could have ended up in that file.
I had never attempted to import that vcard into the claws mail address book.

If nobody wants to look into it, then close the bug report.
