[Evolution] Visors now are "serial", not USB (Was: gpilotd exits with a "cannot open display")

This on Evo 1.2 and RH 7.3:  When I try to synchronize my Visor via USB,
gpilotd recognizes the little machine ("setting PILOTRATE=115200") but
then exits with "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:".  Never did this
before I upgraded to 1.2 release yesterday. "xhost +" doesn't help.
Anyone else having this problem? JPR, what do I do?

I take it this is with 0.1.69?  Did you change the connection type to
"Serial" for the visor (this was in the release notes and an unfortunate
change, but necessary because of some brokeness).

Thanks JP.  Am I right that I can now only sync by first hitting the
HotSync button and then starting gpilotd?  Is there a secret switch
somewhere so I can tell gpilotd to keep polling the USB interface?

It would have been nice if this were also in the Evolution 1.2
relnotes--we don't all subscribe to the gnome-pilot-list.
