About a week before release there was mention of this on and I told 
Jonathan Riddell, who tried it out (not normally a Kontact user), got upset, 
and went to poke people about figuring out why it's doing this. So yeah, it's 
being looked into for what I hope will be an SRU, but it hasn't been figured 
out yet.
