[Evolution] Problems with Contacts

Just installed 2.28.1, under Karmic Koala.(Ubuntu 9.10)

Thought I had the Contacts files brought over in good order, but there
are several individual ones missing, and *all* of the Contact Lists  are
completely hashed. None are usable. And when I attempted
to create a new Contacts List tonight, it gave me a completely
uninformative error message and refused to file the new list.

When I tried to enter an individual contact just now, it gave me
the same error box.

Is there a trick under 2.28.1 to making the Contacts work? 

I've looked through the docs, and so far have not found any warnings
about this area. Mine is not a complicated installation; I do not
have multiple address books, I am not connecting to any sort of
exchange server or LDAP, and there are no other users on my system.
About the most I have ever needed to do with Contacts, besides
the basic address book of individuals, is maintain a dozen or so Lists
ranging from 5 to 15 names each, of small groupings that I need to
mail to now and then. Evo apparently wants me to have to re-enter every
single one of those from scratch.

BTW I still have not found out what Evo did to an entire Inbox of
several hundred messages, 23 of them unread, that just disappeared
yesterday. I'm beginning to wonder if I should be using it at all at
this rate.

Simply because you don't like to hear it, that doesn't make it untrue.
