- fixed record count when exporting entire database
- don't report non-caller id call info events in Activity Log

- fixed problem importing CSV contacts when first name, last name, or company has changed
- fixed problem when importing XML contacts from machine with actions with same name but with different unique identifiers (happens if actions are created on two machines, or actions existed from version one and were converted independently)
- fixed help link in Start Menu group
- fixed problem where installing over version 1 with same Start Menu group name would result in no Start Menu group
- fixed problem importing XML contacts when same phone numbers were already in the database (symptom: contacts were imported w/o phone numbers)
