contacts: lookup on incoming call

using ASU (specifically, 20080826-asu-stable-uImage.bin and
20080827-asu-stable-rootfs.jffs2) i have a contacts database full of 
friends, imported via vcard, in which almost all the phone numbers are in 
internationally-qualified form (eg fred friend, +44 7971 123456).  that 
way, i can dial them whatever country i happen to be in.

but when i'm in the UK, and a UK call comes in, it shows up as just having 
a local number (eg 07971 123456).

these two numbers are functionally the same, but the contacts-lookup that 
happens won't identify the caller as fred friend unless i edit the 
contacts entry to say 07971... rather than +447971... .

a) do other people find this also?

b) does this qualify as a bug?

c) if so, is it a qtopia bug, and therefore (if i follow the discussion 
aright) not something that should be entered into the openmoko bug
