Reuse /home when installing fresh?



Hi All,

When I move up to a new Fedora release, I always start with a clean home
folder and then selectively copy in application settings (personal data
is moved over whole sale).  I've been doing this for a long time now
because in the past I've had problems with crashing/misbehaving
applications and a general instability in the Gnome desktop when I've
reused my old home folder blindly.

I'm about to move up to Fedora 12 - I'm currently using Fedora 11.
Should I be just as cautious as I have been in the past, or can I just
keep my entire home folder and use it as is?  FYI: I don't format
the /home LV when I install a new release.

Regards,

Ranbir
