Yes, I have the same problem, this little bash script wrapper
~/bin/pilot-link does the trick (most of the time) without having to
manually hit the HotSync button in the exact window:

echo "Waiting for hotsync button"
until [ -e /dev/pilot ]; do sleep 1; done
exec /usr/bin/pilot-xfer "$@"

I use the udev facility for creating the symlink to /dev/pilot in

(Last post on this issue, I'll followup on http://bugzilla.redhat.com/161058)
