Owen, that sounds like a file system error.  I've heard periodic reports
of 0 byte notes after loss of power or other crashes where apparently
ext4 partitions can be victim to broken writes.

I'd recommend regularly backing up ~/.local/share/tomboy/ until we think
of a way to work around this, if we can.

Hi. I recently upgraded to Lucid beta on my laptop from karmic. Things seemed ok. Today I noticed that all but two (which may be new) of my tomboy notes have disappeared. There's still a stack in .tomboy but only two in .local/share/tomboy. This makes me very sad :-(

I suspect that tomboy may not be the culprit, and the culprit may be ubuntu-one which I've struggled to get going (without much success). 

I doubt there's anything you can do to help me (unless there's a super secret place where tomboy notes are copied to) but I felt I should file an issue just incase there's something you can do for others.

Possibly related after upgrade/ubuntu one usage all of my podcasts disappeared from rhythmbox and I had to resubscribe. No idea if the two things are related.

I've been using Ubuntu since warty days and this is the first time an upgrade has resulted in data loss!

Thanks Andy Hird
