Both the files 60-libpisock.rules and 60-pilot.rules.  Useless.  

Also, the file 60-libpisock.rules references the group "dialout" which
doesn't exist.  This suggests some install process which didn't run (and
didn't copy files and create the group).  I have the following packages

Maybe I'll try uninstalling and reinstalling these.  I don't have days
and days and days to waste tracking down all these F8 problems, though.
Looks like a move back to F7 is in order.  The kernel I'm running is
