[maemo-users] Garnet VM & PIM

Does anybody know where the Garnet VM keeps its user files? I can't
get it to import any of  my files from my Palm device, and after a
"successful" hotsync, the VM won't launch at all, even after
uninstalling and reinstalling the Garnet VM. There's obviously
something incompatible in my files, but I can't find out what without
being able to try my files one at a time, and the Garnet launcher
won't allow me to install or otherwise access any of my Palm databases
or other user files, only applications.
The Access Web site isn't any help, and it won't even let me submit a
compatibility report. I've tried manually searching my N800's
directories with emelFM2, but I'm not finding anything that looks like
Palm files, and the "Search" app is just as worthless as the built-in
file manager because it won't search the whole file system and doesn't
show the path to files.
The Garnet VM is of no use to me if I can't use it to access my Palm
address book. (That's also my #1 gripe with the Nokia tablet, by the
way - there's yet to be any app for it that can sucessfully import my
contacts in *any* format, including multiple-entry vCard and .csv.)
I wish there were a usable PIM for the Internet Tablets. I've tried
the gpe suite, and it will only import a single vCard at a time, and
that's an extreme PITA. Gpe won't import csv files at all. I could
retype all the entries just as easily, but since I have hundreds of
entries that's not going to happen.
