Hum, I don't see that.

No, but syncing works for me -- with a minor exception that I have to
manually load the visor kernel module.  I know I can add it to
/etc/modules but I was hoping how to learn how to use udev to load and
unload the module like used to work with hotplug.

I asked on the ubuntu-user list but I don't have much luck there with
the more technical questions.

As I posted before, I just have:

moseley at bumby2:~$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/85-palm.rules 
ACTION=="add", \
KERNEL=="ttyUSB[02468]", \
ATTRS{product}=="Palm Handheld*|Handspring *|palmOne Handheld", \
RUN+="/bin/su - moseley -c 'sleep 2; jpilot-sync'"

And it works.
