I have been digging around on mailing lists about this, but haven't been

Essentially, I want to be able to start up evolution on my machine at
work, go home, and then be able to ssh into my machine at work and have
evolution come up on my X session at home.

What happens instead is, evolution will open up another evolution window
on the initial display.

From what I have read the same thing would happen if you started two X
sessions as the same user on the machine locally as well. It seems to
have something to do with oafd.

Does anyone know if there is a work around for this? What exactly is the
reason for why this doesn't work?

Originally it was bonobo, now the only real reason is that the camel
session does not get shared (I have a patch in my tree for this).  So if
you mark a message as "read" in a local mail box (ie POP) the view on
the other display does not get updated.  I'm not sure what other issues
might crop up either.
