Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2008-04-22 15:36:46 EDT
I tested this and it worked fine for me.  All settings and accounts restored.

Step 3 sounds suspicious.  If you tell Evolution to restore from a backup, there
is no continuing with the default setup process.  Evolution shuts down, unpacks
the archive, and restarts itself with everything restored and ready to go.

Resolving as NOTABUG.
