Description of problem:
My evolution crashes right after trying to answer a mail. I newly
installed Fedora Core 2 Test 1, no update, on a plain home directory
and added 2 IMAP mailaccounts, one which uses SSL in both directions.
If I try to start evolution from the console, it produces the
following output right before crashing:
asked to activate component_id
(evolution:2603): EBook-CRITICAL **: file eab-book-util.c: line 85
(eab_name_and_email_query): assertion `book && E_IS_BOOK (book)' failed

The german translation swaps the %%s and %%+05d
The failed eab_utils assertion seems unrelated to this, but also
doesn't seem to do any ill.
Fixing the german translation fixed the bug for me.

Patch for a bug in the german translation
