I just installed UbuntuOne on a machine at home, but when I tried to connect to my account I got

AttributeError "'NoneType' object has no attibute 'get_rootdir'"

Every time I start UbuntuOne on that machine, I get that error and it doesn't show any folders.

That error message usually means SyncDaemon is failing to start. So yes, you need to file a bug or a support request.
