It's not only zombies, the notes synchronization doesn't work at all. I get rid of zombies by deactivating the sync, though not possible to set it up again. Seems like local service on the port 8000 is not running properly.

Fernando Maia (f-m-maia) wrote :

In less than 24h I got more than 400 zombies just by leaving the sync on its default settings. Easiest way to get rid of the zombies: close Tomboy and staring it up again. Nothing is affected (sync still works ok), but zombie creation will build up again.

Sending kill -s SIGCHLD <tomboypid> has no effect whatsoever, the zombie child processes are still there.

Upstream apparently has a patch. That does not seem to be incorporated by Ubuntu though.
