Following your suggestion
I downloaded jpilot_1.6.0-1_i386.deb
and it seems to work much better in exporting a csv file.
There is one problem.
The phone numbers now have two fields - one for the type (work, home
etc) and one for the actual number. For some reason the csv file
_always_ contains the old names (Work, Home, Fax, Other and E-Mail) even
when I select some other type of number.
For example, if I pick Mobile in J-Pilot for the first number, it comes
out in the csv file as Work.
Can you comment on this?
