The reason they disappear is that the handheld turns the USB 
interface on when you hit the sync button, and turns it off after it 
is done. To the kernel, there is no difference between turning off 
the USB interface, and unplugging the cable. (The same thing happens 
in Windows.)

for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
