Default Address Groups Are Merged After Sync

Please Login to Remove!

FYI everyone ....

I found a merged contact group in my Mac address book following sync with PocketMac. The new 'merged' group contained contacts that were common to 3 three independent groups. The contacts in the new merged group were stripped from the independent groups.

I did this test ....

I created 3 new contact groups in my Mac address book: Basic, Bat & Bazooka. I added 5 new contacts to each group as follows:

Basic ... DELTA, ECHO, Alpha, Bravo, Charlie
Bat ... DELTA, ECHO, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel
Bazooka ... DELTA, ECHO, India, Juliet, Kilo

Notice that contacts Delta & Echo are common to all three groups.

After sync'ing I found that I had 4 new contact groups:


See attached file for post-sync screen shot.

Group 'Basic, Bat, Bazooka' contained the contacts that are common to all 3 groups, which are Delta & Echo. Meanwhile, Delta and Echo were removed from the three other groups.

Anyone know how I prevent this from happening in the future?
