I imported a lot of addresses from Lotus Organizer before.
After this, i created some list's and some address books other then the 
'Personal Adress Book'.
On assigning the adresses from the 'Personal Adress Book' to the lists or other 
address books, it sometimes happened, 
- that the item in question was not a valid entry but a blank one.
- the hole list was corrupted and the entries before where deleted and only one 
emtpy entry was remaining.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take an address book containing a lot of addresses (preferred from an import)
2. Create lists and other address books.
3. Move entries from the 'Personal Adress Book' to the lists and other address 
books. (It may take some time, but sooner or later you will get the bug!)
Actual Results:  
Corrupted lists and / or address books. Probably you will have some data lost 
depending of what the other address books contained before.

Expected Results:  
Build up lists and address books correctly.

This bug is very similar to 260960 which occurs in version 0.1 of thunderbird 
and is closed in the meantime, but the problem seems to be still there.
