This can be summed up like this:
Tomboy synchronization is a client/server model. Configure each of
your computers with Tomboy to synchronize to one common (empty!)
location. That location is the "server".
This is not like Unison which tries to synchronize your ~/.tomboy
locations with one another. You need to have a single location on
some server that all of your Tomboys synchronize with.
It sounds like you have one desktop computer that servers as your SSH
server. Make a new empty directory, say "~/tomboy-sync/". On the
computer that is also the server, use the "Local Folder" sync service
to sync to "~/tomboy-sync/". On your other computer(s), use the SSH
sync service to connect to the first computer, and use that
"tomboy-sync" as the Folder Path.
Assuming I've understood your situation, this should work fine. If
you have any further issues, please let me know. If you find any new
bugs today, I may have time to fix them before the 0.8.1 release
tomorrow morning. :-)
