Did you restart gpilotd?  The devices.xml is only checked when
gpilotd starts.

Try the following:
open a terminal window
Run 'killall gpilotd'
Run '/usr/libexec/gpilotd'

This will start gpilotd in the terminal window, so you can see its

Now run 'gpilotd-control-applet' to start the applet, and see what
messages you get from gpilotd.

Alternatively, you can check you've got the right port name and
permissions using pilot-xfer:

pilot-xfer -p /dev/ttyUSB1 -l

This should invite you to press the HotSync button, connect,
list apps on your Zire, and disconnect.  If not, try ttyUSB0,
as you're not going to have success with gnome-pilot until
pilot-link is working.
