A few things come to mind: 

If you blacklisted visor, removed it, restarted udev and its STILL
loading, then its being loaded by something else. A cron job? Something
else in /etc/modules? Something distribution-specific? I'd rgrep /etc/
for visor and see what comes up.

Did you add the 700p's vendor/prod structures to the .rules for for udev
using pilot-link? I don't think we've ever had a user with a 700p before
using udev, so that entry may need to be updated so that libusb can hook
in and handle it at connect time (likewise for the visor module, that'll
need to be updated and rebuilt as well; it doesn't require a kernel
rebuild, you can just build and install the patched module directly).

If you rmmod visor, cradle your Palm device, and hit HotSync... does the
system log show any visor-related messages at all? If so, then I'd
backtrack from there and see why. 

Also, make sure you're running a current version of udev. I'm running
108-0ubuntu4 here and it works great. You don't need the latest bleeding
edge version (and DO NOT build it from source and try to install it
yourself, you will break things). You just need something current. 

If you're still having trouble, catch me/us on irc and we'll help
real-time;, port 6667 for cleartext, 994 for ircs.
