J-Pilot is trying to read one or more .pdb files and failing.  Make sure
the permissions on your ~/.jpilot directory and all files and
directories in it are sane.

Assuming the permissions are ok, make sure you don't have conflicting
versions of pilot-link or jpilot installed.  By that I means you should
only have one instance of jpilot and pilot-link installed (use rpm -qa
|grep pilot) and nothing installed manually in /usr/local.

And finally, make sure the .pdb files themselves are not corrupt,  but
this is unlikely if you were previously using them with 9.2
