Did you just "kill" Evolution, or run "evolution --force-shutdown"?  The
latter option should be run before backing up (or restoring) any files,
because it causes information held in memory to be written to disk.

I used 'evolution --force-shutdown' and 'gconftool-2 --shutdown' on both computers and then used rsync -av to transfer the evolution and .gconf files.

It wasn't a slam-dunk migration but I'm pretty much back to where I need to be after some manual config work...
