Re: gpilotd isn't seeing my Palm

	..and to add to that, the reason why is because the previous USB
Palm devices would broadcast the string "Palm Handheld" when they attached
to the USB subsystem via the usbserial driver in Linux. gnome-pilot uses
/proc to detect when the device is attached, and to what device. The
Tungsten (and Treo and Sony NXxx devices) all do not do this, and can only
be detected via their ProdId value, a hexidecimal value (0x0830 for Palm,
for example). Sufficient changes have to be made to gnome-pilot to
compensate for this.
