As you may see at the top of the page, this is a two-sided bug, with a kernel side (btusb driver) and a Bluez side. The kernel side is said to be fixed. The Bluez side is qualified as New and Undecided. As a result nobody seems to be working on this any more (the Bluez side is not assigned, at least). Shall we see two successive version of Ubuntu (8.10 and 9.04) with the same regression from 8.04 going on for some rather popular hardware?
It may be an upstream bug. I wonder if Bluetooth is broken in all distributions using Bluez 4.xx or only in Ubuntu. I am not a developer and I do not feel like subscribing to a mailing list of Bluez developers to put the question.
Leif Gruenwoldt above (2009-04-05) says that I solved his problem with the hint of stopping bluetooth. Maybe an other software is used to connect keyboard and mouse. With bluetooth stopped, my phone is recognized, but I cannot do anything useful with it. Softwares as Wammu, or bluez-gnome, or blueman want bluetooth started.
In the meanwhile, I reinstalled 8.04 on an old laptop, moved the dongle to the laptop, and I sync my phone with this (mostly the agenda), and copy the files afterwards to other computers to read my agenda in Lightning (Thunderbird extension).
