To make a long story short, you're better off getting a serial
cable/cradle for now.  USB does not work with pilot-link in FreeBSD.
My problem sounds similar to yours.  It would only see one DB on the
Palm and then finish the hoysynch.  When I did pilot-xfer -l it would
only list one of my applications DBs and then say it finished
sucessfully.  Using pilot-link with jpilot and a serial cable (or a
cradle) works great, although I can't seem to make it go any 9600bps, or
maybe I'm impatient :)

Hope this helps.
