A painful way to do this is to make sure no csw gnome apps are running, 
and delete  ~/.gconf-csw.  A less painful way would be to delete only 
the settings that have to do with evolution out of the .gconf-csw 

I take no responsibility for how any of your gnome apps run after 
mucking with .gconf-csw as I don't fully understand the .gconf structure
