I just installed a fresh copy of 11.04 and have been setting up my preferences. I have noticed while doing this that the About Me dialog does not save anything that I put in. I can totally fill the dialog out, close it, and when I reopen it, it is blank. What is going on? I have never had any trouble like this out of any of the other Ubuntu versions prior to 11.04.

Bug in Evolution – Braiam Feb 9 '14 at 3:36

This is a known Bug in 11.04 (Natty) as filed in Launchpad. Apparently this behaviour is due to a lack of an Evolution adress book and a fix is described here, though this probably will be fixed permanently at some point.
