This is a known issue and is due to the fact that address book sources
(particularly, the ones coming from GOA) in EDS are managed by
Evolution, rather than by EDS itself. Evolution has to be started at
least once to grab accounts from GOA and push them into EDS.

As I understand it, this can't be fixed without a fairly big
rearchitecting of EDS which won't happen for 3.2.

(Alex, please correct me if I'm wrong.)
