    Okay folks, I've found the solution to this annoying problem.
    Simply SSH into your iPod Touch and navigate your way down to...
    var/mobile/library/media
    and delete the iTunes_Control folder.

    This will trick iTunes into thinking that this is a new iPod.

    but doesn't this wipe all the app data on your ipod when your ipod is set up again?

    What's so bad about re-syncing your apps back?
    Are you that impatient?
