The updates to pilot-link in FC4 fixed the synchronization issues for
me. The pilot-link is rawhide has been working. The remaining issue in
FC4 for me is that it takes a long time for the /dev/ttyUSB1 device
node to be created. I use a static device node as a work around. The
udev in rawhide creates the device nodes much faster. This solves the
final issue in using the pilot-link utilities.

I don't know about the GUI programs which use pilot-link library, like
evolution, jpilot, and gnome-pilot.  The pilot-link API changed with
the 0.12-pre versions which means the programs need to be updated for
the new API and don't know if that has been done yet.
