After a certain period of time has passed since the entry was created in address
book, the entire entry is missing / automatically deleted. This has happened to
me at least three times now, with Mozilla 1.3 and 1.4. I once had 20+ entries in
address book, today there are two. This happens with manually created entries,
as well as entries automatically created by Mozilla via "Add to address book on
reply" to a email message. Unfortunately I cannot tell how long it takes until
an entry is gone, but it is on the order of months.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create address book entry
2. Wait a couple months
3. Entry is gone when composing new message and you try to add the recipient's
addres via address book

Actual Results:  
Re-enter contact manually once again so can have it back in address book

Expected Results:  
Entry should remain in address book until manually deleted by user.
