I'm on 0.8 which is what comes weith gutsy.

Hmm, might be worth a try.

There are a couple of sync dirs at the client end and a manifest.xml
file on both server and client. I've tried moving the manifest files out
of the way but without success. I could try the sync dirs as well.

I guess I could always syn using Unison as I used to do, but the tomboy
mechanism seems a cleaner solution to me, if it works.

When I have more than two machines to sync then I tend to do it that
way. Seems to work much better!

Thanks for your help.
