Does your script use ttyUSB1 or pilot?  I have found that continually trying
to sync will cause the module to produce not just ttyUSB1 and ttyUSB0, but
ttyUSB2 and ttyUSB3 as well.  Everytime you hit the hotsync button, you
should run dmesg in another terminal to see which /dev nodes were created.
The easiest way around this is to use a udev rule that maps all of them to
/dev/pilot.  This is the way I have it set up (though I do not use a Zire
31).  In /etc/udev/rules.d/10-custom.rules I have the following line:

BUS="usb", SYSFS{product}="Palm Handheld*", KERNEL=="ttyUSB*",

See if that can get you some more consistency on the timings between when
you press the hotsync button and when you run your sync command.
