I just committed Chris' latest patch to fix this problem into SVN
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=395100). If you have a
chance, please give it a shot. It will be included in the next
development and stable releases of Tomboy (0.5.5 & 0.6.0).
So far, I haven't hit any of the previous problems seen in bulleted
lists. Great work Chris!
