User subscribed to multiple address books could cause duplicate contact collections under certain circumstances and cause unnecessary high CPU load. Fixed.
"SC" used as internal prefix.
We have used "SC" as internal identifier for shared system groups and this could break syncing of address books starting with "SC". We have changed the prefix to something different that will most likely not be used in address book names.

Stability improvements, debug information aded.
Due to massive problems at Google a lot of shared contacts operations timed out and caused strange erros.
This could lead to different number of contacts for different subscribers.
We have added some more debug info and some minor tweaks to be able to track down the problem some day in the future.

Overall stability improvements.
Due to high datastore latency at Google (see http://googleappengine.blogspot.com/2010/06/datastore-performance-growing-pains.html) a lot of shared contacts operations timed out and caused strange erros.
This could lead to different problems up to deletion of shared contacts.
The overall error recovery and timeout handling has been improved to support service even when Google datastore operations are extremely slow.
