I am using git HEAD to test and develop, so I think I do have your

As for my customizations, I'm almost sure they're the reason for me
seeing the errors.  What I have here is:

  (eudc-protocol-set 'eudc-inline-expansion-format '("%s %s <%s>" firstname 
name mail)
  (eudc-protocol-set 'eudc-inline-query-format '((mail)
                                                 (firstname lastname)

I'm buying an even newer revision from git, FWIW.

If you insist, I can do this test later (unfortunately I will be very
busy these next days).  Meanwhile, if you could check that my
configuration is what triggers the failure, I'd appreciate.  Also, IMHO,
the final patch makes sense to me, even if there are still other issues
to be fix on EUDC.
