I just looked at Tomboy on my notebook that has Natty.  For me 
File-->notebook does not show a sub-menu either.  If you do File-->new 
you will get a new note. On that window to the far right is Notebook. 
Clicking on it will pop up a menu that will allow you to create a new 
notebook.  Not that efficient but better than what you are doing now.
