Do you see anything in /var/log/messages?  I have a problem with the
kernel claiming my Treo 90 lies about the number of ports, although it
creates ttyUSB0 and ttyUSB1 as it should.  When I tell jpilot to sync
(or start a pilot-xfer backup), there's a buffer overflow and the
jpilot (or pilot-xfer) is killed.  When I disconnect or reset the
Treo, there's a kernel bug reported in /var/log/messages saying "kernel BUG at
kernel/workqueue.c:109!".  The machine freezes for a couple of
minutes and when it comes back to life, I can't mount USB keys, etc.
So in my case, at least, it seems to be a kernel bug.  Your
description sounds similar.  Can you sync the Palm at all?

I filed a report
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=186712).  If
you're seeing something related, add yourself to that.
