Using Debian - SM 1.2.5, and flat-file addressbooks...

When creating a new entry, SM doesn't seem to handle
double-quotes quite properly. Single quotes seem fine.

The rest:

"isn't this fun?"
produces
isn't this fun? -- (strips the double quotes)

"isn't th"is fun?
produces
isn't th -- (drops the rest of the line, but
the file contains everything past it)

"isn't this fun?
produces
a broken addressbook. The entry contianing this
comment is no longer shown, and neither is anything
below it. This is, of course, the biggest bug.

No idea if there is the same problem in other
database formats.

If you need more info, let me know.
