Currently Blink queries the Google API every minute to check for contact changes, so after it has synchronized with Google, the contacts you deleted through the web should also be gone in Blink.

Even 20 minutes later it was still messed up.  The only fix is to exit
Blink, and sometimes even that doesn't do it.
