	This isn't the case 100% of the time with J-Pilot. See the 
other 5 or 6 top-reasons people have sync problems with USB Palm 
devices and desktop applications.

	We've identified several distribution kernel versions that 
break, while the same kernel version built from upstream (unpatched) 
sources using the same .config from the patched kernel, works fine. 
SuSE 9.0/9.1 and Fedora Core 3 are the current "worst offenders", but 
I'm starting to see that newer kernels from them seem to fix the 
issues that slightly earlier kernels were reported to cause.

	Whittling, that's how we'll sort it out. Feedback from users, 
identifying the platforms and conditions, we can figure out the cause 
pretty quickly, and report that back upstream to the kernel 
maintainers and other places where things are affected.
