This empty "contact" seems to be permanent, possibly an artifact of the
It could be the artificial "self" contact:
As far as I know, it is not defined whether that contact can be deleted.
Your experiment shows that it can't, probably because it is synthesized
from settings on the device.
I suggest that you add a check against the self ID and exclude that
special contact from syncing. This won't be correct with other QtContact
backends (QtContacts-EDS stores a normal contact and marks it as
"self"), but Harmattan is now the main (exclusive?) user of the backend,
so there's no harm in tailoring it towards that.
