I actually got it to work now. The trick was to delete all local data
and then run syncevolution from the CLI:

$ syncevolution --sync slow <profile>

I haven't tried with the GUI app (first time I did  I ended up having
to re-delete everything and start all over again - it might be
different now and it might be that I've missed some pref) but I'm
quite happy running it like this from command line.

I seem to remember that there was some discussion here (back when I
was on my N810) about running something like cron on Maemo. Is that
possible? I would love to automate my syncing.
