Package: gnome-pilot
Version: 0.1.71-5
Severity: normal

Synchronization is working intermittently for me. More specifically,
synchronization *works* intermittently. Most of the time it hangs. 

When gpilotd starts, it displays the following:

    Message: Pilot name -> m505
    Message: Pilot id   -> 18698
    Message: Pilot username -> Bill Wohler
    Message: Pilot creation/rom = 985360412/67108864
    Message: Pilot sync_action -> custom
    Message: Cradle Type -> Serial
    Message: cradle device name -> Serial
    Message: cradle device name -> /dev/ttyS0
    Message: Pilot Speed  -> 115200
    Message: Timeout -> 10
    gpilotd-Message: Exiting (caught SIGTERM)...
    gpilotd-Message: gnome-pilot 0.1.71 starting...
    gpilotd-Message: compiled for pilot-link version 0.11.7
    gpilotd-Message: compiled with [VFS] [USB] [IrDA] [Network] 
    gpilotd-Message: Activating CORBA server
    gpilotd-Message: Watching Serial (/dev/ttyS0)

When I push the hotsync button on the cradle (serial cradle, Palm M505),
the debug output either:

a) Doesn't show any additional output. Workaround: bring up settings
dialog and dismiss it.

b) Shows the following before hanging:

    gpilotd-Message: Woke on Serial
    gpilotd-Message: setting PILOTRATE=115200

Workaround: Kill gpilotd, bring up settings dialog and dismiss it.
Typically, after doing this, I can usually hotsync multiple times in a

c) Shows the synchronization. Interestingly, it ends with:

    Message: time_file: destroying time conduit
    memo-file-conduit-Message: destroying memo_file conduit

I would have expected to see the "Watching Serial" message. Upon hitting
the hotsync button the next time, I saw a:

    gpilotd-Message: Exiting (caught SIGINT)...

I suspect gpilotd is not closing the device and getting back in a
position to listen. If I kill gpilotd, I can run pilot-xfer all day

    [wohler@olgas:506]$ echo $PILOTRATE 
    [wohler@olgas:507]$ time pilot-xfer -p /dev/ttyS0 -i PluckerDB.pdb 
       Port: /dev/ttyS0

       Please press the HotSync button now...
    Installing PluckerDB.pdb... OK
    Install done

    real    0m5.199s
    user    0m0.000s
    sys     0m0.000s

Note that the 12k file is installed faster than my observation of the
time between hitting the hotsync button and seeing the Identifying user
message (if I see it at all).

Interestingly, as I finish this message, synchronization is now 100% and
fast. Perhaps that last killall gpilotd cleared things up. If I discover
what trips things up, I'll append that information to this report.
