The backends are still running holding a copy of the Address Book in
memory. Before moving your data, close the backends:

Can anyone help me figure out where all of the

Well, if autocompletion does not trigger (remember, at least 3 chars),
check your settings:

 Tools / Settings / Folder Settings / Autocompletion Folders



My last 2 upgrades of Evolution 1.4.5 also did not have the
autocompletion working as it should.  Go to setting -> folder settings->
autocompletion folders.  It should say "Contacts" in "Local Folders". 
Unfortunately, even if this is there the autocompletion may not work.  

Remove the the entry and then add in exactly the same entry. Then auto
completion works as it should.  This may not work in your case, but I am
2 for 2 using this method.
