Did you follow the direction in the Help document? Chances are it was
set up improperly (yes, it is kind of counter-intuitive to set up,
that's why we're working on Snowy).

Yikes, that sounds like it was a pain. :-/

The manifest.xml is not necessary unless you are using sync. It is
not something you need to create manually, ever.
All you need to do is make sure Tomboy is not running on the "new"
login, copy all of your backed-up *.note files into ~/.tomboy, and

At this time the only supported way to synchronize your notes is to
use the built-in Synchronization feature. If you need help setting
this up, feel free to ask questions in here, or in #tomboy on GIMPNet.
