Hi Frantisek,

thank you for your fast reply!

I was not aware of gconf and gconftool -R / yields a lot of
configurations (for example my Gizmo Project account settings) but I
could not find the settings (or a reference to them) of the IM/gtalk
accounts. But I will look deeper into it to verify, but if you have
another pointer, I'm more than greatful!

On the other hand, I at least found the last 5 searches of the Search
Applet: located at /home/user/.osso/mis/internet-search-applet.xml
