Tomboy web sync conflict window proceeds to overwrite local notes when closed

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomboy

Tomboy v1.2.1, Ubuntu 10.04.

When syncing Tomboy notes to Ubuntu One and a conflict occurs (between local and online notes) a conflict pop-up window appears that does not have Cancel button (see Bug #456175). Without a cancel button present and if the user wants to cancel the sync operation the next logical thing to do is to try and close the conflict pop-up window. When doing so, Tomboy does NOT cancel the operation. Instead it makes Tomboy go forward with the default operation, which for me was to overwrite the local version of my notes by the online version. This occurs without the user being aware of it and so can lead to data loss.

Expected behavior: When closing the conflict pop-up window the sync operation should simply stop.
