I solve this particular issue by always SSH'ing to one machine where
everything is maintained. This requires fast connection at both ends, which
is the major pitfall. Mozilla applications have some synchronisation
utilities, which are worth exploring. Thee other possibility, as already
pointed out, is to share the filesystem and fetch the settings and data from
there. I know about people who do this with Thunderbird, but this can
probably be achieved with KMail and KNode.
