I'm using J-Pilot 0.99.8 With pilot link 0.12.0-pre4 on arm (not sure the
platform is significant), and I was getting segfaults when deleting appointments
and memos. From what I can make out, when pilot-link 0.12 is used the function
delete_pc_record uses pi_buffer_t to as a record buffer. I'm no expert, but it
looks like pi_buffer_free is getting called twice on RecordBuffer, which is
causing the segfault. 

Attached is a patch that cured the problem for me...

Also, I had what I think are endianess problems on arm, for which I adapted a
patch for version 0.98.4 that I found on the web. I'm using j-pilot on a
Zaurus SL-C1000 running pdaXrom to Hotsync with a Fossil WristPDA, and it now
seems to work a treat, thanks! This patch and ipkg packages for j-pilot and
pilot-link can be found at http://www.neonbox.org/zaurus/index.html
