There are a couple of methods to move data which will work. You can log
in using only a command-line shell on either the console or via SSH.
This will not start up the Gnome services and you can copy the data freely.

You can also do it from a GUI if you guarantee that Evolution is shut
down. There used to be a killev command...

OK, I just tried this and I have to say WTF? How does anyone do
Evolution development anymore? I killed the processes and they don't
stay dead. What if I wanted to run a newly compiled version with a
debugger or command line flags or environment variables? I have to hack
DBUS files now? That's insane.
