[Bug 946015] [NEW] contacts appear twice when tagged 'personal' in gmail

Public bug reported:

When I add my Google account into Online Accounts in Gnome, contacts from Google Talk appear twice on the contacts list, once "normally", and another in "Personal" group. Also, they have this 'personal' tag in Evolution. I noticed that only contacts that are added to "My contacts" in Gmail's contacts, appear in such weird way... Once you move them out of this "my contacts" thing in Gmail, they disappear from this "Personal" group in Empathy.
Is this a bug, or is it supposed to be like that? I honestly can't think of any reason behind it being so by design...

Maybe it's a Online Accounts bug, actually? Can't really tell, sorry.
