Re: [Evolution] Re: [Evolution-hackers] Evo crashed and my email configuration was lost

We also try to make most configuration type writes write to a separate
file first, then rename over the old one after its been closed, and
sync'd, which should make such losses a lot rarer.  Hopefully ...

Well, bonobo-conf 0.15 and earlier were also not very good about making
sure data was successfully written either, so the problem may just be
bonobo-conf (0.16 fixes this by rewriting libxml's xmlSaveFile to do
proper error checking).

It happened to me and the culprit is reiserfs. This filesystem has a
tendency to mess open files at crash time, it seems. I have an unstable
motherboard on one of my pcs (will repair it soon) and lost my Evo
config quite often (freeze computer with Evo running, reboot, loose
config at reiserfs's journal-replay).
