Ubuntu – the Evolution data files stored


Given that I do use Evolution, and that I have the Ubuntu 12.10, and that I have neither a ~/.evolution nor a ~/.gconf/.evolution file, where are the evolution files please?

In particular, every time I try to modify a certain contact evolution crashes, among other problems. Yes, I've reported the bug. So I thought I'd modify the database or xml file directly. Based on a find command, I suppose the evolution files are in
