I was able to sync on both fc3 and fc4 last night, so it appears that the
key to success is timing.  Oon fc3 I was starting the sync on the palm and
waiting 10s before running pilot-xfer or starting the sync in jpilot.  With the
latest kernel this appears to be too long.  My current guess is 3-4 s on FC4
(P4 1.8 Ghz) and 6s on FC3 (PPro 200 mhz).
