Unhappy Any reason ALL my prefs have dissappeared on the clone?

I was evaluating SuperDuper yesterday by cloning my startup disk to another and using it instead. After the clone, my prefs---pretty much ALL my prefs---have suddenly stopped being read and I'm left with an unusable machine until I rebuild everything. Heck, I couldn't even login to Yahoo mail on that box - had to shift to the winders box next to it.

Both orig and clone are the same in this problem. Mail is giving me the "Would you like to set up mail?" line, and everything else is similar. The prefs and mail are still there, just evidently not being read. Prefs directory and virtually everything in it is owned by me, perms 600. I can't remember if they should be different, but this sure feels like a permissions foul-up to me. "Fix Permissions" gone bad.

This is not inspiring me with a great deal of confidence.
