  Can't open transferred .notes files in Ubuntu or Windows

Status in “tomboy” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: tomboy

  I recently had to revert to Windows after a couple of years running
  Ubuntu. I understood that I could transfer my tomboy notes by simply
  backing up the the .notes files, installing Tomboy on Windows, and
  copying the notes files into the Windows Tomboy directory
  (C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\tomboy\notes). See
  http://www.linickx.com/archives/790/tomboy-on-windows. However, the
  notes do not appear when I open Tomboy, nor do they open when I double
  click them.

  I tried to get around the problem by installing Ubuntu 10.04 in Vbox,
  but the same thing happens there (Tomboy does not recognize notes I
  paste into /home/bruce/.local/share/tomboy).

  I was able to recover text of a couple of key notes using Firefox, but
  that is clumsy and tedious.

  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  Tomboy 1.2.1 (Ubuntu), 1.2.2 (Windows)
  Ubuntu 10.04 in Windows 7 Virtual Box
