gnome-pilot and FreeBSD


I'm having trouble with getting gpilotd to run on a FreeBSD machine. I'm
pretty sure that it's a gnome-pilot issue, since after following the
instructions at it works with jpilot
and the command-line pilot-link utilities.

When I try select pilot-settings in Evolution I get the following
The Application "gpilotd" has quit unexpectedly.
You can inform the developers of what happened to help them fix it.
Or you can restart the application right now.
Since restarting doesn't help, I subscribed to this list :-)

OK. This message isn't very specific, so I started gpilotd from the
command line. I get the following output (my comments are indicated by a
cd /usr/X11R6/libexec/
gpilotd-Message: gnome-pilot 2.0.12 starting...
gpilotd-Message: compiled for pilot-link version 0.11.8
gpilotd-Message: compiled with [VFS] [USB] [IrDA] [Network]

(gpilotd:57100): gpilotd-WARNING **: Can't create lock file /var/lock/LCK..ugen0: m
# This warning goes away if I create a /var/lock directory
gpilotd-Message: Activating CORBA server
gpilotd-Message: bonobo_activation_active_server_register = 0

gpilotd-ERROR **: file gpilotd.c: line 970 (monitor_channel): should not be reached
At the same time I also get the same pop-up error-message that I get
when I select pilot-settings in Evolution.

So it seems that some assertion failed. Is there anything I can do about
it? Is this a bug? What went wrong?
