It's not a bug, it's the way Canonical add the Office suite to Ubuntu.
It's been going on for years with Open Office and now they've done the
same with LO...
If you use Evolution then OO (or LO I presume, I uninstall Evolution
because I never use it) will use the Evolution Addressbook but not
If you uninstall the Canonical-supplied Office suite and install direct
from OO ot LO then the TBird addressbook can be used as a data source.
