The connection establishment between Psion PDAs and PCs
running the synchronization software Psiwin can fail.
Before Psiwin has been started the Windows displays a
tray icon indicating that the Psion is in range,
probably even the "connection established" symbol is shown.

The cause is that starting Psiwin switches to
IrCOMM2k's infrared protocol implementation cutting the
IR link between Windows and the Psion. The Psion fails
to drop this link completely and to allow a new link
with IrCOMM2k.

This bug may appear in conjunction with other IR
devices based on the EPOC operating system, too.

    A user reports that a workaround is using the "IrCOMM2k"
    mode which is selectable through the irmon2k tray icon menu.
    After the first successful connection you can then switch
    back to automatic mode.

    I experienced the difficulty to initialize the communication
    between Psion and PC. The best way is to activate the IR
    link on the Psion only when PsiWin attempts to connect to
    the Psion device

    Thank you for your work.
