pilot-link 0.12.0 does not exist yet.  This has to be a pre-release
version.  If it is pre2, then get rid of it and get something newer
(pre4).  Don't go any further with pre2.

You might have corrupted files in the ~/.jpilot directory.  You can try
removing the pdb files and pc3 files.  This of course will remove your
local data.  I suspect the pc3 files are corrupt.  If you are on a 64-bit
machine an older jpilot would have written incompatible pc3 files.

Whack - Debian :-)  Slackware if you enjoy doing things yourself.
