I got a ton of output, but there is no addressbook at all in the trace.


1) /home is an NFS mount (with exact matches on userids), so the
.evolution/ tree is also on the reomte system.

2) When I copied the old addressbook back in, Evo ignores it.

3) When I added a new contact, the file remains unchanged, but the
contacts are visible in Evo.

4) I'm waiting for the nfs writeback to see what happens if I try this
another way.
