Evolution handles migration poorly

We now have 2 users reporting the same behavior -- upon launching Evolution in Precise, they lost all their customized view settings, and Evolution randomly unsubscribed from some folders on the IMAP server. Fortunately, no data is lost, but this is a bad user experience.

And with trusty, this got worse: Evolution doesn't fully migrate account settings under some circumstances. It also fails to migrate its cache correctly, because as usual, upstream doesn't test on filesystems other than local disk, and the migration script does not cope well with copying from AFS (the old XDG_CACHE_HOME) to a tmpfs (the new one on /run).

I think we're done with Evolution as a supported client.
