[Evolution] Starting Evolution from backup

Just upgraded to LinuxMint 19 and Evolution is trying to start by asking me to import a backup.

Not a big deal until I get to the dialog where I have to search for and select the backup file.   Where this shows up in the syslog.

Jul 11 10:08:51 Ase evolution.bin[15017]: Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.portal.Desktop was not provided by any .service files

So I can't select from that dialog.

Trying the Restore option from the menu also fails as it doesn't see backup file in any of the directories that i can reach.

Given that  evolution-backup-<date>.tar.gz,  it would seem that I should be able to restore by hand, but there seems to be a few post steps that need to be done.   Anyone have a pointer to those steps ?
