[turba] spurious "already exisist in your addressbook"

I'm running latest final releases of Horde, IMP and Turba.

Server config OS X 10.2.6, Apache/1.3.26, MArc Liyanage's most recent 
compiled bins for php and mysql (http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/). 
Lots of ram and drive space.

Horde-IMP-Turba install and setup went without a hitch, mail functionality 
is fine, and I can create new records in both the shared and personal 
address books. The only problem I see is opne that is well-discussed in the 
mailing list archives.

When I click the little address book icon in the mail-reader UI to add the 
correspondent's address to an address book, I get the infamous "This person 
is already in your address book" message; of course, the contact is in fact 
not in the address book.

In the archives, the solution was to search for a line in turba's api.php 
and change it to: 

if (PEAR::isError($res) || $res->count() > 0) {

THe error occurred some time ago and is identified as fixed in subsequent 

Opening my copy of api.php, I can confirm that the line is as above in the 
copy of the app I dowloaded and set up.

Thus, the error stems from something else for me. Advice?
