After a reboot or two it now connects reliably. I have no 
explanation ;)

One other question, is there a way to back up contacts from my SIM 
card? Is there an application around that can do that, or a command?

I've noticed once the contacts program showed no contacts, and the 
SMS program also couldn't find the contact names. Another time the 
SMS program couldn't find any SMS. In both cases after a restart 
everything was fine, but it did make me anxious to back up my 
contacts (I don't have a backup anywhere, currently).
