I get the message about it lying about the number of ports, but no other
error messages. Nothing gets written to /var/log/messages when the
computer hangs - presumably because the computer is hung. :-)

pilot-xfer crashes with a buffer overflow if the device has not been
created or is not writeable, otherwise it works (I've just been doing a
a database list so far for testing: pilot-xfer -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -l). Once
pilot-xfer is done, the computer hangs (at the point where the devices
should be removed; just before, just after, I don't know).

I haven't been seeing that. It is actually in my /var/log/messages a few
times, but I was trying out a vanilla kernel, and I think it may have
happened then. I'm not seeing it now.

I haven't seen mine come back to life yet. I have given it a few minutes
a few times, but I'll try waiting a bit longer.

My external USB harddrive and my USB cardreaders work as expected.

No. I haven't even gotten that far. The computer will hang even if I
don't run pilot-xfer (or something else) at all. If I press the hotsync
button, then let it time out (or cancel it from the Palm), the machine
will hang - without having run pilot-xfer (or anything else). This leads
me to suspect udev or the kernel, but I'm no expert...

BTW, it doesn't hang every time. It will often hang on the first try,
sometimes on the second or third or occasionally tenth, but it will
always hang after a few tries.

I think I'm seeing a different bug.

Here's what I get in /var/log/messages, starting from the time I press
the hotsync button until the machine hangs (the last line is the first
line from the reboot).
