My first guess is that you're using the wrong ttyUSB device.  If ttyUSB0
doesn't work, try ttyUSB1.

My second guess is that it's a timing problem between the sync
initiation by your device, and the udev-created ttyUSBx devices
appearing and being ready for action.  These kind of problems have been
annoying and have fluctuated with udev releases.

Have you tried using the command-line utility 'pilot-xfer'?
You can install pdb files directly using:
  pilot-xfer -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -i file.pdb
You may need to replace ttyUSB0 with ttyUSB1, depending on your palmos
device.  You will need to start the sync on your device and then run

pilot-xfer is part of the pilot-link package, so you probably have it
installed already.

I haven't used kpilot, so can't diagnose any specific problems there.
