Bug Description

Good day!

I have not tomboy installed, but have gnote instead. When i activate tomboy plugin in Plugins window, i cannot edit any existing/new task anymore. I've got this traceback (when try to edit task):

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/GTG/taskbrowser/", line 1336, in on_edit_active_task
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/GTG/taskbrowser/", line 754, in open_task
    clipboard = self.clipboard)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/GTG/taskeditor/", line 192, in __init__
    self.pengine.onTaskLoad(self.plugins, self.te_plugin_api)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/GTG/core/plugins/", line 199, in onTaskLoad
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/GTG/plugins/tomboy/", line 167, in onTaskOpened
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/GTG/plugins/tomboy/", line 117, in addButtonToToolbar
    tb_Taskbutton_image_path = self.tomboy_icon_path
AttributeError: pluginTomboy instance has no attribute 'tomboy_icon_path'

When i disable tomboy plugin, i can edit any tasks as before.
I think that gtg confuses tomboy with gnote because they "looks" identically (dbus resources) but have some differences in API. I may be totally wrong, but the fact is - i can activate tomboy plugin without tomboy installed and make some mess with it ). May be gtg should know how to work with gnote or it anyhow should distinct tomboy from gnote. I'm using 0.1.99 and can provide any more details if needed.

Thanks for the great release!

GTG can't work with gnote as it does with tomboy, since gnote does not provide a dbus interface.
