At what point in the sync does it hang?  You can usually tell
from the applet window, but you'll get more information if you
run gpilotd from a terminal.

The question is whether the sync has started and you're getting
a crash from, say, one of the conduits, or whether you're not
managing to connect in the first place.

The latter problem is more common.  See ubuntu bug 66355 for a recent
discussion.  In this comment:
there is a link to some unofficial packages that fix a few problems
(it's based on fixes that then got released as gnome-pilot 2.0.15).

The other thing you can try is to configure 'libusb' syncing.  See
for a guide to configuring libusb sync.  When you have that working
you can select the 'usb:' device instead of the ttyUSBx devices.

Good luck,
