Did you compile this yourself? Is it 64, or 32-bit? Which OS?

The Databases should be fine. You could compile with --disable-private
until you find some time to work on it.

Pilot-link has a 64-bit bug in it that prevents the password from
working in jpilot. Are you using 64-bit now?

The T3 has the newer Memos application as opposed to the older Memo
application. J-Pilot appears blank because it has not synced to the
Memos database yet. You'll have to change the preferences in jpilot to
Memos and then sync. It would be a good idea to back up first.
