the Phonebook is an ascii-file. The first 8 characters must be
PBOOK1.0. Then follows the field, seperated by |. One dataset has
the following fields :

Name,Faxnumber,To Company, To Location, To Phonenumber, Remarks

But becareful, because of the alpha stadium there may be changes
on the phonebook !!!

The crash is another bug.
