  tomboy: error saving note data

Status in “tomboy” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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

  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.

  Tomboy panel log (.config/tomboy/tomboy-panel.log) reports

  [ERROR]: Exception while saving note: System.IO.IOException: Sharing violation on path /home/user/.local/share/tomboy/a3e6005a-3897-43c6-a217-92781d572707.note
