Well, one thing I've run into, though I think it's more my own stupidity: I
added a bunch of podcasts with gpodder, but withouth thinking I then added a
file using gtkpod, which was already open. gtkpod updated with what it knew was
there prior to gpodder adding the podcasts, ie. gtkpod deleted the new entries.
the free space on the ipod is pretty clearly taking into account the podcasts,
though, so I'm not sure how to update the ipod to either delete the extraneous
files or add them to the menu :-\
