If Contacts is started with broken storage file then it crash on adding new
contact. Would be nice if it will check own files.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Because --disable-debug was set in glib, the assertations were skipped and the
application did not exit earlier as it should have done.

I have now added some further error checking and message dialogs to inform the
user if the address book could not be opened.
