If only I got an error, it would be so much easier to figure out! 
Everything appears to work okay, no errors in the JSConsole.  I copied
the following messages from it in case you can see anything wrong.  Most
of the messages are, of course, like the one that begins "Card
[pas-id..."  There are a few lists at the end, which I thought might be
causing the problem, but I created a new address book without them, and
it didn't sync any better.  Since I had tried this on two different
computers (not counting the Linux one), I figured it probably wasn't my
installation (in fact, on the current computer, I re-installed
Thunderbird because I had been running version 0.8).  That seemed to
leave only my IMAP server.  I haven't had any problems with my mail, but
I have had occasional problems deleting folders -- not that I can see
the relevance of that, but I'm looking for any issues.  So I tried
Synckolab without the "save to IMAP folder option," but that didn't work
either.  I tried creating several different folders to do the sync with;
none of them worked.

I have given XUL a look in the past with an eye to creating my own
extensions, so I might try to look into this.  The problem is that I can
handle the basics well enough, but the object model for something like
IMAP would probably baffle me as much as ftp did.  It seems like the
vCards are getting created, but I don't know what's happening to them at
that point.  Thanks again for your help.
