I actually haven't had a problem with it going active when I go into the address book specifically, but I've had another problem that may be related...
I think I posted this elsewhere, but in my case, it seems that when I had "Dial from Home Screen" turned OFF in my phone options, the keys that would normally dial a phone number (ie, the number keys) will still activate the headset. This naturally includes keys that are shortcuts for other things (such as "C" for compose, which is also the "9" key). Pressing a subsequent key (or the same key a second time) from the home screen will in turn deactivate the headset.
You can try this with a key that is not mapped to a shortcut (such as the Z/7 key) -- the first press will activate the headset, and then a second press (wait about two seconds) will deactivate the headset.
I first encountered it when composing new messages from the home screen, which was fairly annoying until I figured out why it was doing this. Now I just either use the scroll wheel, or use Z-C to compose new messages (Z activates the headset, and then C deactivates the headset and goes to the Compose Message screen).
