Description of problem:
gnome-pilot "restore" does nothing. Following the procedure of hard resetting the palm and then synching triggers a restore but that hangs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Hotsync your Palm immediately after doing a hard reset.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Backup your Palm
2. Hard reset the Palm
3. Hotsync your Palm
Restore hangs on the "User Identification" step and eventually times out.
Restore completes with old info back on the palm.
Per the message thread on the gnome-pilot list from July 2008, it *is* possible to get a restore by manually running
pilot-restore -r <path to backup folder> -p usb:
