Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomboy

At the moment, Ubuntu patch for Tomboy stores the credentials retrieved from SSO in its gconf storage. So when the user invalidates the tokens on the web ui or control panel Tomboy won't notice that and will keep trying to use the tokens that are no longer valid receiving 400 BAD REQUEST (or 401 UNAUTHORIZED). The users will not have any other user-friendly solutions except of resetting the sync state which in turn will cause the conflicts to be created.

At least tomboy should try to get new oauth tokens if it sees that the ones it is caching are invalid.
+1 from me.
