I should clarify that I haven't changed anything from the defaults and 
I'm running:

jpilot-0.99-87

When you make a change in the jpilot program, say add a contact, what is 
the default location for the AddressDB.pdb ? I've drilled down a bit and 
found lots of copies.

/home/jmurray/.jpilot/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/.jpilot/jpilot.backup/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/.jpilot/jpilot.backup/backup03011625/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/.jpilot/fucked/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/.jpilot/fucked/jpilot.backup/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/.jpilot/fucked/jpilot.backup/backup03011625/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/jpilot.backup/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/jpilot.backup/jpilot.backup/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/jpilot.backup/jpilot.backup/backup03011625/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/jpilot.backup/.jpilot/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/jpilot.backup/.jpilot/jpilot.backup/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/jpilot.backup/.jpilot/jpilot.backup/backup03011625/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/jpilot.backup/.jpilot/fucked/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/jpilot.backup/.jpilot/fucked/jpilot.backup/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/jpilot.backup/.jpilot/fucked/jpilot.backup/backup03011625/AddressDB.pdb
/home/jmurray/pilot-backup/AddressDB.pdb


I made an entry using jpilot, but none of the files changed size or 
state. Where do the changes get written?

thank you
