I have found that, unless you have a good working udev rule that links 
whatever USB port that the kernel sees your palm to /dev/pilot, that you are 
going to have unreliable connections.  That is because sometimes the device 
is assigned ttyUSB1, sometimes ttyUSB3, and so on. (It always seeems to be 
assigned odd numbers.)

If you press hotsync and then run dmesg, you can see what port it is assigned.

Let me know if you need more details for this to make sense
