phoneuid is supposed to be started as the X user. In SHR they are
using the root account for everything, so they don't have this
problem ;) Try adding "log_file = " in the config file.

And another failing strcmp :P (The segfaults I reported so far where
strcmp caused, too). I just checked the source. I guess you have a
contact with an empty Name field. Can you check
[1] /etc/freesmartphone/opim/csv-contacts.txt for such contacts?
