BitPim 1.0.7 correctly reads data from my LGVX5500. It displays the 'Import Phonebook data screen' The data is correctly read.
When I click on "OK" to save the data, BitPim crashes, giving this exception report:

BitPim has written the SQLite database, It may well be partially written, but I see the information from the phone in the GUI.

Any help is most appreciated.
