irdadump also dumps data when there is no connection, are you sure you
see data from the Palm?

Are you aware that it only works up to 57600 bps yet? I have a file
/etc/modutils/irda-local which contains:

post-install irda echo 57600 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_baud_rate

so the rate gets automatically limited.

Also, I sometimes have to /etc/init.d/irda restart, but after that it
works pretty reliably for me.
