[Users] address-keeper plugin and address completion

Hi Ricardo, hi users,

I was annoyed by the fact that the address keeper plugin fails to push
new addresses into the address completion immediately. So I hunted it
down and came up with the two patches attached to claws bug #2835


The descriptions there ended up being a bit convoluted because the
many description fields made me write many descriptions, sorry about
that ;)

Basically, to get immediate updates working, the address-keeper plugin
should refresh the address book. But if the 'name' of the recipient is
empty, claws-mail still drops it from address completion because of some
obscure condition in addr_compl.c, and that's what my patch for
claws-mail tries to fix. With both patches applied, it works the way
I'd expect it to, crossing fingers against any adverse effects.

I'm using these patches now. I hope that you have time to look at them,
and maybe even improve and/or commit them?
