Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomboy

When I run Tomboy from the command line (tomboy --debug) I often see one or more errors of the following kind printed when I edit a note, e.g.:

[DEBUG 13:25:45.734] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'pr'.
[DEBUG 13:25:45.734] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'proper'.
[DEBUG 13:25:46.709] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'pr'.
[DEBUG 13:25:46.709] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'proper'.
[DEBUG 13:25:57.811] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'andr'.
[DEBUG 13:25:58.649] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'andr'.
[DEBUG 13:26:01.019] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'tr'.
[DEBUG 13:26:01.849] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'tr'.
[DEBUG 13:26:03.285] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'tr'.
[DEBUG 13:26:03.991] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'tr'.
[DEBUG 13:26:04.545] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'tr'.
[DEBUG 13:26:04.896] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'tr'.
[DEBUG 13:26:05.592] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'tr'.
[DEBUG 13:26:06.215] DoHighlight: null pointer error for 'tr'.

These errors appear to occur only for some notes, and for the affected notes, the errors only occur sometimes, depending on where in the note I edit.

There is no loss of functionality as far as I can see.

If I create a new note, and edit it, the errors do not occur.
