The SMS applet on my phone is doing the same.

If I try to start it from the command line. I get 4 coppies of the error 

Gtk-WARNING **:gtk_widget_size_allocate(): attempt to allocate widget with 
width -11 and height -11

and a Segmentation fault.

I imported about 400 contacts using the one of the scripts on the Wiki page 
about VCF contacts (1), and considering the number it is likely that some are 
null, so I deleted them all using another script on that page and the SMS 
applet started working again.
