There are parts of evolution that run as slightly differently named
binaries, but that have evolution in the name. Killall misses these. If one
of them needs to be restarted, then doing it my way allows you to ensure
that they do relaunch when you start evolution again.

I like evolution, but it has never exactly been stable for me, and I have
been using it since 2005.
