Yes, a bit too early :-). I do not restart jpilot except when I reboot
the computer.

Maybe. But I only use the Sync button and don't really want to start a
command line.

If plugin_pre_sync() is called before the Palm is connected we will also
solve the problem of batterie usage: power on the Palm _only_ when
J-Pilot is ready to sync.

The patch I propose is simple: just move the "pre_sync plugin" piece of
code at the start of jp_sync() in sync.c.
My question is: will it break existing plugins?
