Description

This is related to issue #1827, that is solved in the new release of Replicant 6.0.
To solve the issue in already-installed environments, the Dialer app should be patched to do the following when it is run for the first time after a system upgrade:

- Reset all settings regarding lookup anti-features to "Disabled"
- Keep track of the one-time-change in the shared settings SQLite database
- Leave settings unchanged during subsequent runs, to allow users to adjust them as they wish.
