Hm, this doesn't seem to help for me.  I now have the opposite problem.
On my work system I reinstalled from Ubuntu 7.10 scratch (because I
wanted to repartition my disk to have a separate /home partition).

I started Evolution from /usr/bin and it worked OK.  Then I decided I
wanted to run with a version I had built myself from SVN, and
compiled/installed it into /opt/evo.

I have a shell script I'm running to start Evo, and it sets up my
environment then logs all kinds of details, so I know my environment is
correct; here's an excerpt from the log (obtained by running "env |
sort" so I know these are properly exported as well):

        Evolution start on Mon Oct 29 15:35:55 EDT 2007: 

But when I use ps to see what's running, I get:

        $ ps -aef | grep evo
        psmith    1512  7673  6 15:40 pts/5    00:00:01 /opt/evo/bin/evolution
        psmith    1526     1  0 15:40 ?        00:00:00 
        psmith    1546     1  3 15:40 ?        00:00:00 
        psmith    1561     1  0 15:40 ?        00:00:00 

(Before I started /opt/evo/bin/evolution there were no processes running
containing the string "evo").

Can anyone tell me why it always invoking the stuff in /usr/lib, instead
of the stuff in /opt/evo/lib, even though I've set LD_LIBRARY_PATH,
BONOBO_ACTIVATION_PATH, etc. etc.?  And, how to change this?
