Public bug reported:

It seems that no matter what I do tomboy will not allow its remote access to work under edgy. I always get this message printed to the command line at startup
[DEBUG]: Tomboy remote control disabled: Name 'com.beatniksoftware.Tomboy' does not exist.

and whenever I try to use tomboy's remote service ( tomboy --new-note or some other command line parameter) I get the following error.

Unhandled Exception: System.ApplicationException: Name 'com.beatniksoftware.Tomboy' does not exist.
  at DBus.Service.Get (DBus.Connection connection, System.String name) [0x00000] 
  at Tomboy.RemoteControlProxy.GetInstance () [0x00000] 
  at Tomboy.TomboyCommandLine.Execute () [0x00000] 
  at Tomboy.Tomboy.Main (System.String[] args) [0x00000] 

However, /usr/share/dbus-1/services has a 
com.beatniksoftware.Tomboy.service file with the following contents:

[D-BUS Service]
