Clive, Carsten,

Thank you for replying.
> $ sudo aptitude purge jpilot 
The Palm Pilot now syncs again! I did the above command, re-installed 
J-pilot, and I'm off and running.

I also learned something new. As described here, one has to press 
Hotsync on the Palm Pilot *before* pressing the Sync button in the 
J-pilot interface.

Before, I usually had to wait about 6 to 10 seconds between pressing the 
two Hotync buttons.

But now, it seems if I wait that long, it doesn't work. Now, it works 
more reliably if I press the J-Pilot Sync button pretty much right away, 
like, one second or so.

Thanks to all who helped me out on this! Your support is much appreciated.
