This is because the string returned by gtk_widget_get_name no longer matches the widget ID in the GtkBuilder UI file, which about-me is using to map widget contents to EContact fields

This bug was fixed in the package gnome-control-center - 1:2.29.91-0ubuntu2

gnome-control-center (1:2.29.91-0ubuntu2) lucid; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/98_about-me-wid-fix.patch:
    - Widget contents are mapped to EContact fields using widget ID's
      defined in the GtkBuilder UI file. However, the name returned
      by gtk_widget_get_name is no longer the same as the ID in the latest
      Gtk version, so don't depend on the name for mapping the widgets
      to the correct EContact fields (LP: #525520).
