Hi Adam,

As you already figured out, the trouble was caused by gnupod 
trying to find the devices serial number (aka fwid).
The problem is that gnupod used a rather crude way to look for
the device in /sys/block and ubuntu has recently made some big 
changes there. 

The problem you describe has been reported before:

It would be great if you could check out the current CVS version 
of gnupod to see if it works any better:
sudo su -
apt-get remove gnupod-tools
apt-get -y install cvs
apt-get -y install autoconf
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/gnupod co gnupod
cd gnupod
make intall
