I still ended up having to re-define my filters (filters didn't know
where to move messages to) and also had to add columns to each
folder's view configuration.  And auto-complete on addresses doesn't
work any longer either.  

sounds like your $HOME changed between machines perhaps? If so, known
issue that's been resolved in 1.5 by not using full pathnames in the
config settings.
