So that was a little glib, and I figured I really should try again, just in
case I'd done something wrong (heaven forbid!).

I carefully brought up that dialog, and modified every single address
with "mar." in it, to remove the "mar.".  Then I went into my address book
and did the same.  Then I started a new message, entered "mar" in the "To"
field, and got a list of names only containing my wife, a "Mary", a "Marg"
and two addresses containing "Maritime".  OK, so far.

Closed kontact, opened kontact, tried again.  All those "mar." addresses are
back.  At least I now think I have enough information to file a bug report.
