Concerning the new evolution package, you'll also want to ensure that your
evolution-data-server package is as up-to-date as possible too, as this contains
the LDAP code.
If you open the local and LDAP contacts in one of the contacts views and browse

type of contact?
If this isn't fixed in the FC4 or rawhide versions of Evolution, the best way to
make sure your problem will get looked on is to report it to the authors of the
program. Most upstream authors use a bug tracking system like bugzilla, and more
people who know the code will be looking at the bug report there.
The upstream bug tracking system to use is:
Please make sure the bug isn't already in the upstream bug tracker before filing it.
