[tomboy-list] Sync. issue (win/linux, dropbox)

I work with an Ubuntu netbook and a Windows XP laptop, and have tomboy
on both. I sync using Dropbox (Local folder). The windows laptop is
often connected to a VPN through which I have no outside network access
(cannot sync Dropbox/notes while connected). When I create notes on the
Windows machine while connected to the VPN, they often get erased after
syncing. I last experienced the issue this morning, after creating 3
new notes from info I gathered while on VPN. A little while after
disconnecting the VPN, I checked my notes on the linux machine to see if
they were there. They were not, so I ran the sync on both computers,
and nothing was done. Then I checked the taskbar in Windows and noticed
that all 3 of the notes had disappeared. I have opened tomboy on both
machines and the notes are not there.
I am using 1.5.2 on Linux and 1.4.2 on Windows, so I probably should go
ahead and upgrade on Windows.
Anyone know how this might be happening?
