I've played around a bit, and I can't figure out where, if anywhere,
the 'exclude from sync' setting might be toggled (or used).  It is
possible that it is an obsolete flag that gnome-pilot should be
ignoring.  I've asked a question on the pilot-link-devel list,
and we'll see if any info surfaces there.  It's odd that no one seems
to have run into this issue before, to my knowledge.

The solution is almost certainly to re-compile gnome-pilot from source,
changing manager.c to remove the check on the "dlpDBMiscFlagExcludeFromSync".
If you are on Ubuntu and need some tips on compiling from source, take a
look here:

I know, not the answer you were hoping for :(
