[Synckolab] Colon in address book field corrupts vcard

Hi. I'm using 0.4.28; this bug may already be fixed in a newer version,
I'm not sure.

If an address book field has a colon in it, and vcards (Kolab v1 format)
are used in SyncKolab, the vcard will be corrupted. SyncKolab writes it
out with the colon in the field, but then when it tries to read it back
in, it doesn't read back the full field written, rather it gets cut off
at the colon.

Does vcard format allow for some kind of escaping within fields?
