Some of my local address books can't be opened. The error message is :

If can help, I have this problem and this is my GCONF configuration in /apps/evolution/addressbook, name = sources, 3° value:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

The address book "Personale", that have "system" relative_uri, works correcty, and I get "Invalid source" opening address book "AbleTech", with relative_uri 1295625049.3850.8@cvs28.

I see that the "uri" is wrong, because now the addressbook is in .local/share/evolution/addressbook, but I have also tried correcting this URI in GCONF, but the error stays there. I tried opening the addressbook.db.summary files, and they seems ok.

I cannot also delete that address book... I think I'll delele the not working book from GCONF, and recreate manually.
