Why won't iTunes recognize that my iphone has already been set up?

On Friday, I used Sn0wbreeze to update my (jailbroken) iphone 3gs from 3.1.3 to 4.0. Everything went smoothly, and I restored all my previous apps and files. I synced the phone a few times that night to get all my settings the way I wanted. Today, I plugged in my phone to sync it, but now iTunes is showing the "Set Up Your Phone" screen, with the options of either setting it up as a new phone or restoring from a backup. What gives, and how do I make it quit?

I have downloaded several apps from Cydia since the previous syncing, but none of them seem to have shown a problem on the phone. A few caused it to go into safe mode, so I deleted them. The phone is working just fine and shows no sign of anything weird. iTunes also seems fine, other than not recognizing my phone as being set up. I don't want to spend the hour or however long to restore the phone again, especially if the problem might recur. This is iTunes 9.2 on XP, and I used Sn0wbreeze 1.7.
