I installed the "Address Book Palm Sync Install" on my WinXP system and
performed a hot sync.  Much to my surprise, all my Visor Handspring contacts
were transfered to my WinXP AB.

I then attempted to perform the same operation on my Win2K system.  This time, I
noticed that only the AB Lists were created - none of Visor contacts were
created on the Win2K AB system.

Luckily, I have a Handspring Visor and restored the backup from the Backup module.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Perform a hot sync on system #1
2.Perform a hot sync on system #2
3.Verify that the AB was correctly created on both systems.

Actual Results:  
AB was correctly created on system #1 (WinXP).

AB lists were created but none of the contacts were created on system #2 (Win2K)

Expected Results:  
AB should have been correctly created on the second system,
