[Wine] Trying to Uninstall Palm Desktop & Hotsync

Hi all.  I'm running Wine 1.0.1 on Kubuntu 9.10.  I made an attempt to install Palm Desktop and it failed.  I used the uninstaller to uninstall it, and it didn't seem to do the trick, because it seems to hang up on the hotsync manager.  I did make sure to kill the palm desktop app and the hotsync manager from both the terminal command line and using the wine taskmgr command to kill the hotsync process.

I resorted to deleting the Palm folder under the $/.wine/Program Files folder.  Unfortunately, hotsync just won't go away.  Now, any time I plug my centro phone into the usb sync/charger cable, it appears to attempt to be downloading something from palm (and failing, ultimately), even though the hotsync.exe doesn't seem to be running.

Have I made a complete cake of it?  I've read the Wiki and the docs and I'm not sure where else to go with this.  I'd appreciate any help.  I'd prefer not to have to delete the entire .wine folder, as I have another program I use with wine, but I'll take it as a nuclear option if I must.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me.
