workaround for /dev/pilot that's out to lunch?

Hi All,

I find that after a few [days, uses, lunar cycles??] my /dev/pilot
device stops appearing when I hit the sync button on my palm cradle.
Sometimes it's the palm itself, and a soft reset fixes it, but much of
the time the only cure is to reboot my SuSE 9.3 system. That's rather a
nuisance. Curiously the rest of the USB system continues to work. I
can't tell if this is something to do with udev, the USB system
(unlikely) or something else but it's certainly a pain.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to restart the USB/udev parts of
the system so I can perhaps kick /dev/pilot back to life without a full

Or any other workaround--indeed, has anyone else found this, or is it
just me?
