yep.  i think it may be a timing issue with the nokia 6600 and
palm t2.  still debugging.  but look at that first l2 ping time

# do-bt palm ping 
20 bytes from 00:07:e0:0e:24:28 seq_no=0 time=2089.554 ms result=0 
20 bytes from 00:07:e0:0e:24:28 seq_no=1 time=42.244 ms result=0 
20 bytes from 00:07:e0:0e:24:28 seq_no=2 time=56.052 ms result=0 

also, is there a hack for the palm t2 to allow serial port service
so i can use jpilot-sync over bt?
