I don't think I shed quite enough light yet :)

There are three components to gnome-pilot:
  o  gpilotd: the daemon
  o  configuration applet: the GUI for changing settings.  This can
     be launched from Evolution under Edit->Synchronization Options...
  o  panel applet: This shows status on the panel when you are
     synchronizing and a progress window.  Adding this to the panel,
     as described in my last mail, should mean gpilotd starts when
     you start your gnome-session.
