The version of pilot-link that gpilotd is compiled against is 0.9.5,

I don't use gnome, but I am the maintainer of the debian pilot-link
packages and can explain what has happened with the 0.10.99 upgrade.  If
gpilotd only uses the libpisock library, it should be fine - libpisock4
(0.9.5) and libpisock5 (0.10.99) can both be installed at the same time,
and gpilotd will continue using libpisock4 until it is recompiled
against libpisock5.  

If, on the other hand, evolution uses any of the pilot-link executables
(such as read-ical or install-datebook), it's possible that it may be
falling victim to changes in command-line parameters in those utilities.  

Just to follow up....  I've fixed this annoying problem on my box.  I've
recompiled both evolution and gnome-pilot by hand, against libpisock5. 
I don't know whether evolution uses the pilot-link executables as Ben
was saying above (can anyone speak to that?).  

I did try to recompile just evolution against 0.10.99, but that didn't
fix the problem (it may already have been compiled against libpisock5?),
but after recompiling gnome-pilot against 0.10.99, I'm able to actually
read the things in my calendar again (nice little feature, that).

Anyone else have problems with this combination?
