Yes, these are the same synchronicity problems that arise if you are
running two instances of gnomecard.

It would be great if the programs could communicate. Like I said in a
previous post, it would be ideal if I could open up a GnomeCard "Add"
window and fill the relevant fields with sensible defaults. I don't know
if this is possible though, with no support for bonobo in GnomeCard. Do
you have any suggestions on this?

In the meantime (before balsa switches from GnomeCard to use Evolution) I
am working on not allowing the user to add an entry to the address book if
there is an instance of GnomeCard running.
