I followed the advice on the Ximian support pages, created a group named
'sync', added my username, chown'ed the devices, set chmod to 770 and
tried again.

Hotsync doesn't happen at all (works in my Redhat with gnome-pilot) and
pilot-xfer starts sync'ing, transfers a variable number of files, then
fails on the Visor.  I've done it several times, and it fails on
different files, so it isn't db file specific.

Any thoughts?
