Note, that I don't get those issues for my not updated Ubuntu Precise.
Don't you experience similar issues like those:

I'm not aware what does cause this issue, but I first experienced it
with Ubuntu Quantal. When I want to edit settings for Xfce4 or Evolution
in Quantal I often have to delete ~/.cache, then it does work. This is a
known bug, many people experience on Xubuntu user mailing list.
On Arch I need(ed) to edit some settings, especially the username for a
POP access of an new account. I can't change a typo, the edited username
will be reset to the username with the typo, even if I delete ./cache
I directly edited the configuration files in
after deleting ~/.cache, but when opening Evolution, those settings are
ignored, they must be archived somewhere else. There's nothing in /tmp
and again, ~/.cache was deleted.
The only good news is, that after deleting the cache and editing the
configuration files with an editor _+ a reboot_, Evolution does use the
Since I'm sharing only the mail folder by different Linux installs, I
can't change the settings from another Linux.
FWIW, sharing the mail folder can't cause this issue, since _Evolution_
restored the settings and mail folder from a backup, the original mail
folder is in the Arch home directory and I had no access from another
Linux for this new Arch install. And again, it's a
known bug for Xubuntu Quantal, other people experience too, even for
Xfce menu settings etc..
Any hints are welcome, since rebooting after searching and editing
configuration files is a little bit to much for my taste and until now
Evolution doesn't accept the password for this new account.
I wonder if the displaymanager is the culprit, since before I installed
$ pacman -Qi lightdm
Version : 1.5.0-2
$ pacman -Qi lightdm-gtk-greeter
Version : 1.5.1-2
I didn't notice any .goutputstream-* 0 byte files in ~. Those useless
files are stored during shutdown/restart.
At least I don't get the performance issues on Arch, that I get for
