Neil,

please upgrade to version 2.2.10, you find an ubuntu package on our website.

Note that 3.0.0 is also released (in sid), but that is a .0 release, so do take a backup first if you go that route. No major bugs found yet though. In 3.0.0 the name format handling is largely rewritten and simplified, so this bug should no longer be a problem there. If you do have it on 3.0.0, let us know on http://bugs.gramps-project.org/my_view_page.php
