Package: gnome-pilot
Version: 2.0.10-6.1
Severity: normal

When setting up gnome-pilot, the dialog box only accepts something
like /dev/[a-zA-Z]+[0-9]* as device name.

This makes it impossible to

  a) Use user specific names for USB devices like /dev/foo-pilot and
     /dev/bar-pilot for the users foo and bar, respectively.
     In the age of udev, I suggest accepting much different device

  b) As described on 
     it seems that for netsync to work, the same problem applies,
     because for net sync the device name isn't "/dev/something" at
     all but "net:".

Suggested fixes:

  a) No restriction for devices the user types in. However, keep a
     number of common options to choose from (like /dev/pilot, net:,
     /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyUSB1, etc.)

  b) Restrict device name depending on connection type (Serial, USB,
     IRDA, Network). Probably difficult to handle all conceivable
