That's normal...you are using the gpsd bindings on your desktop
They permit you to talk to a gpsd compatible device
I tested it with fso-gpsd(python on my desktop with the gpsd bindings(so
I needed to install gpsd on my desktop to get the bindings) and fso-gpsd
on the openmoko)
So you have 2 solutions:
1)replace fso-gpsd by gpsd
2)use dbus to talk to the GPS
