That's progress, I suppose...

Where did all your tags come from? Are they stored in the vcard? AFAIK nepomuk 
starts out with no tags at all (unless it uses the vcard CATEGORIES/NOTE

Were the tags there before you imported your contacts? If yes, it may be your 
distro's default setup that is broken.

Try to find a way to reproduce it, if possible without any random behaviour. 
I'd suggest using a small(er) contact list (using a new user,  so that you 
know that the kde setup isn't broken). and trying to import it. Then report
