Not a TX, but I've done it with a Tungsten W and Treo 650.

Start the TX sycing first before you fire off jpilot syncing, and 
(assuming you're using udev) point apps at /dev/pilot as the USB ports can 
sometimes get held open, and on the next sync /dev/ttyUSB2 and 3 get 
allocated instead.

The Tungsten always worked fine, but the 650 is quite a bit more finicky 
and can take a few sync attempts before it "catches". For some reason, 
running jpilot-sync from the command line instead of firing it off from 
jpilot works first time more often. I have no reasonable explanation for 

Cheers... Dop.
