Problem is that I was not able to move any contact to another 
metacontact. When I tried that Kopete immediatelly crashed. So in 
this release of Kopete it it not possible to change/delete any 
(meta)contact. And I think this is really big problem which 
should be fixed as soon as possible. You can also see how many 
users reported this crash:
