Yes, there was a bug in the gnokii im/export filter of kaddressbook, which I 
just fixed now in KDE CVS's HEAD.
Anyway, it seems that libgnokii still doesn't handle locale/unicode data 
correctly in:
  gn_sm_functions(GN_OP_WritePhonebook, &data, &state);

Let's say, that contains the name "Jürgen Öhm" (with 
two umlauts) and the rest of the name field holds zeros, then gnokii stores the 
name correctly with the umlauts in the phone, but adds two more random 
It seems to be a relation between the number of umlauts and the number of added 
characters. I assume, that libgnokii does something wrong with the result of 
the strlen() functions (which does not correctly handles unicode input).
This happed both with SUSE's libgnokii 0.6.0 and gnokii's 0.6.1 CVS version.
Pawel, maybe you have any idea what could be wrong ?

Another thing:

The gnokii API was changed incompatible with gnokii-0.6.1 (CVS) from 
gn_cfg_read(char **bindir)   to  gn_cfg_read(char *filename, char **bindir);

Could you please either change it back and make it compatible again ?
Or, please add a GNOKII-specific numeric #define with which external apps might 
get a chance to choose the right functions.
E.g. please add 
+ #define GNOKII_VERSION 0x061
to include/gnokii.h ?
