Re: address book categories? not uploading to Pilot

I tried it. It didn't work. I fixed the silly bug & commited it. It works now. :)
So if you try the CVS version of gnome-pim or whenever the next
release comes out the fix below (with precreating the categories) will 
work. The more general fix of creating categories automatically will
take longer, as it is a bigger change. 

Thanks for finding and reporting this problem,
