Tomboy isn't a service, which is why it isn't
started/stopped/re-started as such. It's an application that should
be quit through the menus it provides. If it's still running and you
are unable to access the menu to quit it, `killall tomboy` is a
perfectly safe way to shut it down.
But you should just be able to "remove from panel" and then "add to
panel" to restart it...it sounds like you're experiencing a bug if it
is not quitting when you remove from the panel.
What version of Tomboy and what distro are you running?
