If you could post a complete log, that might be helpful. I just found a
bug in Tomboy similar to this, and if I saw a complete tomboy log
showing your error, it might help me track down your problem if it's
similar to the one I just found.
tomboy: error saving note data
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu

Status in “tomboy” package in Ubuntu: New
Binary package hint: tomboy
I'm running up-to-date Ubuntu Karmic. This bug started occurring a few days ago.
Whenever I create a new or open an old note in tomboy, a pop-up error message warns:
"Error saving note data. An error occurred while saving your notes. Please check that you have sufficient disk space...". See attached screenshot.
I have plenty of free disk space so that shouldn't be a problem. A new error message pops up every minute or so, essentially making tomboy impossible to use.
I have noticed in ~/.local/share/tomboy that notes are stored in a format typically looking like this:
but the note currently open (and causing the problem described above) will only have two two backup versions, one ending with "~" and on ending with ".tmp", e.g.
Over the past several days a few notes have been lost, simply disappeared from my system.
