Thanks for your rapid response, Sandy.

I actually was using version 0.14.0. I'm surprised it is not the latest
version (0.14.1) since this is the Tomboy that came in a new
installation of Ubuntu 9.04. I would have thought that I would have
gotten the newest version when I ran the update manager, which I have
done a couple of times already.
I'm glad Tomboy makes backup copies of the notes automatically. I went
to ~/.tomboy/Backup and I see a lot of notes there. So I assume the
ones that got deleted in the synchronization process will be there. What
I wonder now is if there is an easy way to restore the notes I want. I
had them organized in different notebooks so if I have to open them one
by one to figure out their contents and then archive them in a given
folder it might be a bit of a pain.
Of course, this is much better than loosing them altogether but I'd like
to know whether there is an easy way to recover the notes to their
previous state. I don't see any option in the menus so I really don't
know how to go about recovering them.
