Can you run Tomboy from GNOME Terminal with the command `tomboy
--debug` and then, after it eventually disappears from your panel,
copy and paste the output from the terminal so we can see the error?
That will help us know exactly what's going on. :-)
If you prefer to chat on IRC, you can join us in #tomboy on irc.gnome.org, too.
