[shr-t] Contacts crash upon startup

I'm running shr-testing with up-to-date opkg upgrades and pisi-imported
contacts (from evolution exported vcf). Unfortunately, the latter
combination seems to cause the Contacts application to crash right after
I start it (it will only show up for a moment, sometimes only blank,
sometimes blank at first, then briefly with my contacts list before
crashing). I have to admit that I don't really know how to provide
meaningful debug information (how do I start Contacts from the
terminal?), so I'd be glad for any hints.

On a side note, my sms messages are attributed to the wrong people, ie a
message i got from A's phone number shows up to be by B. The issue might
also have to do with encoding, as the names in the messages include
strange entities -- and those entities are different every time I start
the messages app (eg instead of "Dr. Someone", it's sometimes "x9
Someone" or "<angle><square> Someone" or whatever...)

And, finally, up to recently, every time I made a call, the screenlock
showed "Diane D. is calling" -- though there's no one with that name in
my contacts. Whatever relict is that?

Kind regards
