Bug description:
Binary package hint: tomboy

All versions of Tomboy prior to 1.4.2 are susceptible to this bug:

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=632535

Due to an error in a regex in Tomboy's web sync add-in, notes created in Gnote may send blank content to Ubuntu One or other web sync servers like Snowy.  This could ultimately lead to data loss, if the user expects that a clean Tomboy sync'd to U1 will get all notes with their full content.

I highly recommend that Tomboy is upgraded to 1.4.2 in Maverick, and 1.2.2 in Lucid.  Both of these stable bugfix releases were made to provide a fix for this bug to distros.

If you prefer to patch the fix in, the relevant commit is here:
