I updated cairo-dock this morning to 1.6.0 and found some nice new features in it, on 2 features I found some strange behavior

Both new features are on the applet function:
- nVidia applet
This applet seems to do nothing at all, it just shows a icon in the dock but it displays no information at all, I tried it on 2 separate systems with both 2 different nvidia graphic cards. Both systems only show the logo nothing else, ofcourse I tried to configure it but there is not much to configure.
Is this normal, what should it do?

- Tomboy applet
This one I really like but it also does not work properly, when I add it to the dock it appears and it opens the default note which tomboy always opens. This default note is annoying and should not open at all, but that is not the bug I found. If I close this default note the applet just reopens it again, I tried it 5 times and each time I close it the applet reopens it automatically again. Only when I minimize the default note I can use the tomboy applet, I cannot find any setting where I can change this so I believe it is a bug.

Are these bugs or just wrong settings and what do I have to change to get it to work?

As far as I know the applet dependent on nvidia-settings.
You need a nVidia graphics card superior to the MX series. FX series should work but some features wont work because these series don't have all the sensors. CPU/Motherboard chipsets and alike are not dependencies.

On my GeForce 8600M GT with driver 173.14.05 it's work.

But you can always give me the output from:
nvidia-settings -q GPUCoreTemp -t
nvidia-settings -q Gpus | cut -d '(' -f 2 -s
nvidia-settings -q NvidiaDriverVersion -t

you can delete this default note I think.
I don't see why it opens it automatically, even on start (never noticed such a behaviour)

It is not the note itself what opens but whole tomboy itself.
If I start tomboy it always opens this default windows where all notes are listed, when I close it the docks automatically restarts it.

ah ok, so I think it's a tomboy problem, since I don't have this one (under Gutsy)
I know that Tomboy launches itself when we try to detect if it's running, which is not a normal behaviour.
did you try the commands provided by ChanGFu ?

it seems that nvidia-settings should be installed (is not default installed) to run this add-on, after installing it works fine.
