[Owncloud] Contact sharing: Can't edit shared contacts

first of all I would like to thank everyone for the great work they are doing 
with ownCloud .

But now to business ;).

I just pulled the latest git and tried out contact sharing. Sharing works 
fine, but I came across an error when allowing others to edit shared contacts.

I always get a "You don't have the required permissions to edit this contact"-
message (rough translation: Is there a way to force the web ui to not use 
german but the english strings?).

The edit fields however are enabled, something that was not the case when I 
tried viewing only. I can also create a new contact, but after that no editing 
is possible. The new contact shows up in the owners addressbook and can be 
edited there.

If you need more information please ask.
