    Yes.  3 syncs...1st one done using copy_to_pilot using all
configured evolution-pilot conduits.

   The OpenSUSE 10.2 system was an image of my home directory
(~/wendell) which
   I began to use with the evolution-2.8.2 installed with it.  It has
lots of contact (~250)
   and many calendar entries.

   Yes, synchronize works under garnome 2.16.2 verison of gnome-pilot

   This error doesn't happen during sync when I use the garnome version
of gnome-pilot.

   did that.  Even with only 1 record being pushed with just the
e_address conduit
   in OpenSuSE 10.2, it crashes the treo.

   Did that too.  Removed the database files for the contact database
using FileZ app.
   No improvement - still resets.

   That would be bad as I'd lose all my contacts under evolution. :(

   Yes.  Initially, it said that it did clean stuff up...but it didn't
resolve the issue with
   the treo resetting.
