Default [Q] Google dialer not working with Eclipse ICS

When I used to double-tap the home button, I got the old voice command menu (which worked fine). Then after some gbloat update, I have to use a voice command icon to open it. Otherwise I get the google voice dialer (which always comes up with the strangest interpretations of whose name I said... it's completely useless) So if i have my bluetooth on, I have to physically pull my phone out of my pocket, unlock it, and then choose voice dialer... needless to say it's quicker just to go to contacts...

By the way, why did they take 'contacts' out of the dialer menu tabs, and is there a way to put it back in?
