I suppose I am among the few in UseNet who bother to fix things when people
top-post, but anyway, as Notan argued:

As regards your question, the About section may indicate nothing but a
fluke. I assume that you downloaded the software from Palm's Web site.
There is usually a variable that contains the version number and is echoes
when the About section gets invoked. The develops must have forgotten to
modify that value. Negligence *smile*.
"Loop" or "loops" are essentially the same. Pluralising it is like putting
dry clothes in the tumble drier. I experience the same problem on occasions
and I use a Tungsten T. Does the HotSync window pop-up? If so, does it
hang? Does it act as if it's reluctant to ever come up and subsequently
requires a reset for HotSync to ever complete?
