Description Roland Roberts 2009-09-08 19:25:22 UTC
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):

gnome-pilot-conduits-2.0.17-2.fc11.i586
pilot-link-0.12.3-20.fc11.i586
pilot-link-devel-0.12.3-20.fc11.i586
gnome-pilot-2.0.17-3.fc11.i586
gnome-pilot-devel-2.0.17-3.fc11.i586

How reproducible:

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
  
Actual results:

Restore hangs on the "User Identification" step and eventually times out.

Expected results:

Restore completes with old info back on the palm.

Additional info:

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:
