   Ah, yes. I forgot about this after getting the new Treo to sync with
jpilot. Part of the problem is that what /var/log/messages reports is not
what pilot-xfer/pilot-link/jpilot expect. The latter expect to see
/dev/tts/USB1. See below.

   I tend to wait 5 or 6 seconds to allow the connection to be well
established. Doing this with the proper device path results in:

    Listening for incoming connection on /dev/tts/USB1...

and there it sits.

   So, correcting the device path helps, but the connection is still not
being established.

   Keep up the insightful comments!
