Try using "motelist"  and see what port it says when you have
your tmote plugged in. Then use that port in the MOTECOM variable:
     export MOTECOM=serial at COM4:tmote
The Boomerang demo apps also include Count/CountUart which is about
the simplest way to test your setup.

I've noted that the USB to serial port conversion picks a different
port ID (on Windows anyway) depending on what USB jack/hub is being

Also, try going back to Delta and make sure it still works. You can
use Listen instead of the Trawler PC program to look at messages.
Make sure you are using the version of all the java code that got
loaded with the Tmote tools, I think the tmote wasn't supported
prior to about v1.1.10
