Overview: Edit a record on the palm device, sync and sometimes two cards appear
on  both sides (palm device and Mozilla AB). The first card includes the
original data and the second card includes the additional data. 

I have only seen this problem with records that use special characters so
far(i.e. Euro, Trademark, Yen symbols)

Steps to reproduce, although it doesn't happen consistently:
1. Create records on the palm device using special characters (First Name, Last
a. Euro --> alt+0+128 = €
b. Tradmark --> alt+0+153 = ™
2. Perform a palm sync
3. Edit the record on the palm device by adding an email address
4. Perform a palm sync
5. Edit the record by adding phone number and address data
6. Close the application (not sure if this is necessary)
7. Perform a palm sync

Actual Results: 2 records/cards appear on both sides (palm device and Mozilla
AB). The first card includes the First Name, Last Name and Email address. The
second card includes the same data and also the additional data for the phone
number and address areas.

Expected Results: Onlye on record/card should appear which should include all
the data.

Note: I will attach a log file which might shed light on when this problem
exactly occurs.

The log file unfortunately was empty. Will have to try and recreate one again.
