I have a single directory/folder on Ubuntu One. How do I examine its contents to see what is there (ie what has been uploaded)? multi-clicking doesn't appear to work. (Running Ubuntu 11.10).

Have you read up on basic linux commands? Changing to your directory in a shell using cd and then using ls will output any files in that directory – Linztm Mar 7 '12 at 20:54

To check what you have synced in the Ubuntu One cloud, you can start the application "Ubuntu One", log in with your email and password. Click on the "Cloud folders" button, and you will get a list of every folder you sync. Now you can double click those folders as well. Check for the text "File Sync is up-to-date." (Just above the "Cloud folders" button) If you got that text with a green "V" in front, you know that everything you see is "uploaded" or in sync. You will also see how much space you got left.
