Hmm, sounds a bit broken. What version of Tomboy are you using? I'm on 0.9.5 
here from a non-ubuntu repo, and it works very nicely. Of course that means 
using a non-ubuntu repo version, and that's your choice. It does have some 
nice features over 0.8* though :)

deb http://apt.schmidtke-hb.de/ gutsy main

( I also get AWN from that repo - which is why I added it in the first place 
- getting an updated Tomboy was a nice side effect for me ).

Remove the sync directory from the server you are syncing with?

I sync from one laptop to my server, and then another laptop to the same 
server. Rather than direct from one machine to another.
