Thanks for all the pointers, that's really helpful.

It seemed to work just now, with the sync icon spinning and my laptop
appearing at the top of the sync results because I'd just started
using it.

Ah, but I don't see that latter bit. In the Android UI, I have a
devices that last synced on Jun 10, Mar 22, Mar 21, Mar 20, Dec 16,
Oct 17, Sep 30, May 16 2012 (in addition to ones that synced more
recently and actually make sense). And many of these actually appear
as duplicates (by name) of devices that synced more recently, which
feels particularly silly.

all of those devices.
