I believe this information is related to this bug:

When I start gpilotd manually in a terminal, it runs fine and I never
have a problem syncing.  When it is started by opening the app at System
--> Preferences --> PalmOS devices, it syncs fine until I close that
window.  Once I close that window, gpilotd crashes on the next sync
attempt and must be killed with -9, then restarted.

When it is started by that GUI app, the process info is: 
ryan      5530  0.2  2.1  68136 10924 ?        Sl   02:38   0:00 /usr/bin/gpilotd --oaf-activate-iid=OAFIID:GNOME_Pilot_Daemon --oaf-ior-fd=51

If I start it manually with gpilotd --oaf-activate-
iid=OAFIID:GNOME_Pilot_Daemon --oaf-ior-fd=51, it still works fine... so
I guess all I can contribute is that gpilotd crashes when it is started
via the GUI and the GUI is closed when a sync attempt is made.
