More Gnome packages

It is time to once again to see if evolution is a little bit more
reliable with sharing data with my palm pilot. Previous versions have
more than once messed up my address book and/or datebook info usually
by adding duplicate entries.

In order to have evolution talk to the palm, i needed to install a
boat load of debian packages.

apt-get install gnome-help ref="http://packages.debian.org/cgi-bin/search_packages.pl?keywords=sawfish-gno
gnome-control-center gnome-utils

Sigh -- I still can't fully sync my palm pilot with evolution.
AddressDB seems to transfer the info, but then times out and doesn't
call the next conduits. Turning off the Address conduit seems to let
the datebook and todo list synch up. Then turning the Address conduit
on again makes everything work. Strange.
