Unhappy [Q] cm7 contacts issue

i'm new to rooting, however i managed to get my phone rooted and got cm7 up and running on my own, i'm having one small issue, when i goto contacts i have only like 8 contacts there, however i should have 137 contacts, now they are in the phone as i can search for them and find them, however they do not display in the list.

i go to

contacts
settings
display options
i'v turned off contacts with phone only
then selected my gmail account and checked all
then my cloud and checked all
still only shows 8 contacts

when i log into the cloud via my pc, it shows 137 contacts, also if i search on my phone it locates contacts not visiable in the list...

anyone experience similar bugs??

cm7 for the DX2 hasn't been updated in 2 years.

not really a bug, i don't think, more likely an issue with how the contacts were saved to Google or sync'd to the dx2

Default clarification

so has anyone been able to import their contacts properly?

just want to know if i should spend hours that i dont have, working on something that cant be done??
i can workaround it, using search

but it would be nice to have the list in one peice..

are there any know contact apps that can be installed that MAY override my current list or use in lieu of..

phone is a DX2 (MB870) running CyanogenMod 7.2.0-RC1 X2 [BETA] ?
Most people have no issues with contacts, but it happens.
at google.com/contacts are all contacts under "My Contacts" or other group?

sometimes rebooting phone may fix
exporting contacts to sd card and re-importing them
export contacts from google.com/contacts (more>export) as a .vcf file, place on sd card and re-import them
