I am afraid I can't be of much help and don't have much time right now to
dwell on this (and only get a few minutes every few days to check this

I also have the clie t665c and I use it with Kpilot. Sometimes it syncs
multiple times, sometimes just once. Sometimes it kills the keyboard and
also sometimes after synching makes the shutdown process stall. 

Unfortunately I haven't been able to correlate when all of those happens and
haven't been able to do a proper troubleshooting for lack of time. 

I did have a hunch that it was related to the udev rules that do not set up
the palm to /dev/pilot (instead I am using /dev/ttyUSB0), but I haven't
followed up on it. 

Sorry, this might no be of much help you, but it's all I've got.
