Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 496070
Entry from PAB doesn't appear in names list when 'To:' is hit

Description of problem:
When creating a new email, then clicking on the "To:" button to look up an email recipient in an address list, an entry in the Personal Address Book does not appear in the "Select contacts" window.
Steps to Reproduce:
Open Evolution. Go to Contacts. Import an ".vcf" file/card -- preferably Chris Evich's, since this card was the one noted in the issue report -- and verify its presence after the import. Switch back to "Mail" view. Click on "New" to star a new email. Click on the "To:" button next to the "To:" line to pull up the "Select contacts" window. Find & select the "Personal" address list. Likely note that Chris Evich is not there.
A given "Personal" entry, previously imported to the PAB via the Evolution "Import..." function, does not appear.
As in the past, manually entered and imported "Personal" contacts should consistently show up in both the "Contacts" view as well as in address look-ups.
Uploading a screen shot (sorry for the space-embedded-in-the-names condition) showing a sample of the above-noted behavior: a new email, with the "To:" button having been clicked on, superimposed over a view of the PAB with the apparently-unavailable entry clearly showing up.
Notes from SEG:
Patch attached. There were some inconsistent string compares. Vcard fields are supposed to be case independent.
