I would start by just plugging in the adapter into your PC all by
itself with no robostix or gumstix attached. It should show up as an
extra COM device. Which OS are you using on the PC?
I would then run a jumper from the Rx to Tx pin and you should be able
to fire up a terminal emulator and type and see what you type. Remove
the wire and you should no longer see what you type.
Once you've gotten this far, the device itself is probably working fine.
This page offers some suggestions on making it work under Windows:

Yeah - Pin 1 of the GUMSTIX connector is GND. If you had a 4 pin
header on the robostix, then the Acroname adapter should be able to
plug in directly into that - i.e. no swapping of wires.
