No need - someone already reported that, it was a broken "cvs" tarball.
Will update with 0.2 soon.

This is the result of using Qt Designer, KDevelop and C++ style 
indentation. As you call it, a complete identation disaster. Qt Designer 
is a little too restrictrive on it's indentation options, and thus all 
the *ui.h files need _a lot_ of work.

Point 1: This is already been done. There is an option called "connect on 
Point 2: Will there, now that you mention it. Thanks for the idea.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but if you only have 1 number in your phone, 
it is bound to be the preferred one.

This is propably due to the nature of the broken tarball. It works for me 
100%, preferred etc. Only the address is not copied, and I mention the 
reason in the source.

It also happens to me sometimes, but I haven't figured it out yet, mainly 
because I had my mind on other things.

Thanks, I'm looking towards a 0.2 within the week. Stay tuned!
