That's broadly what I was planning, without the user rename (just using the same name as before). I did have permission issues with this when moving from Mint 15 to 16, but I was doing other (probably silly) things at the time (like using a regular user account and su).

I don't have the space to do this on my current /home (it's like 85% full, lol), but I could move it into a tar and stash it on my other rig (NTFS partition). The only issue I have is the hidden config folders/files - which are safe to move, and which are "current version specific" i.e. Mint 14 specific, and shouldn't be applied to Mint 17

That is precisely the reason for doing it 'in place'. That way you just move the files/folders between the old and new accounts, thus not taking up any more HDD space.

That'll teach me for replying to a post before I have a cup of tea in the morning.
