Unfortunately, none of the developers have access to a Mac, so many of
the Mac issues aren't getting much attention this release. Your issues
sound related to input and are probably not related directly to Tomboy
but instead to Gtk+ or Mono. It's possible those components have fixes
but you'll have to do some exploring/experimenting to find out. Patches
and hints are always welcome.
