That leaves me wondering what mechanism J-Pilot uses to know what records to delete when a sync is done?  Perhaps it is not using pilot-xfer in the same manner as I?  For example, for tasks I do

J-Pilot uses a delta file in the ~/.jpilot directory with a pc3 file
extension.  It stores all of the additional records, deletions and
modifications to be done at sync time.
