this is just a debug message I forgot to remove.  It indicates a hal
callback has been received, and gpilotd is seeing if the new usb device
is listed in devices.xml.

This looks exactly like my favourite pilot-link bug #1585.  Try
configuring a USB timeout of zero.

gnome-pilot is waking up with the USB device connection, whereas you
want a network sync.  Does netsync work if you disable the gnome-pilot
USB wakeup using the applet -- i.e. use the gpilotd-control-applet to
disable the 'USB' device type and just listen to the network.

I wonder how best to handle that?  I guess pilot-xfer only ever listens
to one device, so it isn't an issue.

Yes, #1585.  Ubuntu uses 0.11.8, doesn't it?

Hope this helps,
