One example from the top of my head:

Shared .gaim between two locations (either nfs home or shared between
windows & linux or something else), user upgrades to pidgin in one place
but not in another, .gaim gets renamed to .purple then when gaim is next
used .gaim is recreated with no accounts etc.
