Vegard, for me, the main mode that caused problems for me was
ess-help, so I needed the following to make it start right:

(eval-after-load 'ess-help
    (add-hook 'ess-help-mode-hook 'evil-change-to-initial-state)

I just double checked this one, and it doesn't start up in any state
without the lines above. If I call M-x make-indirect-buffer on a
buffer, the new indirect buffer doesn't come up in any state.

I've run across a couple more, but I either can't remember or can't
recreate them. I thought another one was the occur-mode buffer, but it
doesn't do that now, so either I remembered that wrong or something's
changed (I just upgraded evil and emacs 24).
