Hmm, how annoying...  

What does '/sysfs/bus/usb-serial/devices/' look like when you initiate a
hotsync on your palm?  I get a couple of symlinks showing up that look
  ttyUSB0 -> ../../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0d.2/usb1/1-4/1-4.3/1-4.3:1.0/ttyUSB0/
  ttyUSB1 -> ../../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0d.2/usb1/1-4/1-4.3/1-4.3:1.0/ttyUSB1/
If I understand the system correctly then if those links are showing up,
it's an issue with udev (or hotplug).  If they aren't then there is an
issue with the kernel/module.

Perhaps I missed it in an earlier post, but what version of udev (and/or
hotplug) do you have installed?
