vcf/ldiff export: fields used for phonenumber?

kaddressbook 3.3

Meanwhile the problems reported about a month ago seem to be fixed, thanks!! 
however, I still can't get my kaddressbook entries written into my mobile:

1) When i export the kaddressbook entries as vcf or ldif and write them with 
gnokii, all entries are written into my phonebook. However: just the names, 
no phonenumber.
It looks as if the fieldnames exported by kaddressbooks are not the same 
gnokii expects for writing? 

FN:firstname lastname
PRODID:GNOKII_XXPORT-RH12_28_--V 04.28-353768002652209

dn: cn=firstname lastname,mail=
givenname: firstname
sn: lastname
cn: firstname lastname

2) when i use the kaddressbook export to Nokia, the export still stops after 
about 20% (meanwhile i faked libgnokii2.deb on my debian and removed the 
original debian binaries, so i'm quite sure kaddressbook uses the current 
self compiled gnokii files). The only debug output i have is:

Message received: 0x03 / 0x0016

Received message type 03

It seems in this case kaddressbook exports in a different way than vcf/ldif 
does, because I get the phonebooks stored on my mobile. However just the 
first 20% :-( I'm really courious what kaddressbook does when exporting to 

3) Feature Wish:
My mobile just knows names, it doesnt distinguish between first- and lastname.
Gnokii (or kaddressbook? depends which fields from the vcf/ldif files are used 
by gnokii) seems to write name = firstname lastname, so all addresses are 
ordered by firstname.
It would really be great if this (name = lastname firstname) could be 
configured somewhere. 

By the way: the original Nokia Software (Outlook Export) has exactly the same 
problem, my co-worker (Windows user with the same mobile) reported to me. He 
contacted Nokia, they don't seem to care about that. Some hundred phone 
entries sorted by first name are no fun however :-) I dont care about 
Windows, but it would be nice if it could be done with kaddressbook/gnokii 
(i'm not sure where it makes more sense to configure that).
