Binary package hint: gnome-applets

For some reason i don't know why for the second time my sticky notes got erased and lost lots of notes i've taken, not related to disk space.

This happened to me for the first time this week.

Has stated, there seemed to be no particular reason for this, no crash, no disk full...

In fact all between the <note> tags vanished in the .gnome2/stickynotes, so the size and the layout of the notes was still the same, but no content in.

The last note I edited was a SQL query, so no peculiar fancy characters, except maybe ' " `

Next day, no content in the notes.

Until now it didn't happen again, maybe it was pontual...there's no way to reproduce it...

This happens to me once in a while too, for no apparent reason. Settings are remembered, but all notes are emptied after a given reboot.

It is not easily reproducible as it happens seemingly random.

In my system, sticky notes lose their data from time to time, for no apparent reason.

In particular, I create one sticky note with some data, I lock it, and some day it appears empty.

It happens both in a plain ext3 installation, and in an encrypted disk installation.
