[jp] "Too Many Catagories"

I don't know if its a bug or not at this point.  My guess is that 
Personal had a "Local" category ID and there was no way for jpilot to 
know whether it was deleted on the palm, or added in jpilot, so it tried 
to add it.

How many categories were in the palm on the previous sync?

How many were added and removed and did they have different names?

Was Personal on the handheld and jpilot during the last sync?

The IDs of the categories would be nice to know, but I don't expect you 
to know that.  If you have the pdb files from before and after you can 
use pilot-file to dump the "app info" and send it to me.
