Well, I didn't manage to trigger a backtrace. But I did observe the

the error report seems to appear only if


contains more than one contact file.

e.g. when this line 

| (custom-set-variables
| ...
| '(org-contacts-files (quote
| ("/home/george/org-files/contacts/contacts.org"
| "/home/george/org-files/contacts/contacts-math.org"
| "/home/george/org-files/contacts/contacts-family.org"
| "/home/george/org-files/contacts/contacts-friends.org"
| "/home/george/org-files/contacts/contacts-tufts.org")))
| ...
| )

appears in custom.el, I see the error, but when it is replaced by

| (custom-set-variables
| ...
| '(org-contacts-files (quote
| ("/home/george/org-files/contacts/contacts.org"))
| ...
| )

I don't.
