Please ignore the previous comment ( now it's gone ) and the previous mail ( if you received ).

The error is caused due to bugs in config parser.
Because malformed tags were being written in '~/.config/gtg/gtg.conf', many GTG versions were showing this same bug while parsing the conf file.
It is also causing errors in an other function dealing with TagTree in sidebar.

I'm working on it

ETA of patch: 1 week

Hi Parin,
Please have a look at this branch: lp:~qcxhome/gtg/bugfix-1218708
It was linked to a bug which is marked as duplicate of this one.
Maybe it can help you.

Hi Nimit,

I saw the branch when it was proposed for merging. ( The user has removed the it )
It's patch solved the specific bug, but didn't address the problem lying in parsing config file due to which the bug was caused.

Thanks for noticing it :-)
