	Wow, that came across wrong. Ok, what I meant to say was.. I've
added a sleep loop in pilot-link 0.11.8, which will repeatedly poll for the
existance of the USB device (max of 5 times before quitting), if you happen
to launch that (or J-Pilot) before hitting HotSync on your Palm. You can hit
them in any order and it will hook up and begin syncronizing. I've tested it
with the latest J-Pilot and it works fine.
