I'm also having trouble trying to get bluetooth working on one computer, in 
that KBluetooth appears in the system tray, but if I try to change the adapter 
name or mode it will change for that session, but if I reboot it goes back to 
the original settings.

Doing ps -ef | grep gives:
root      29     2  0 07:27 ?     00:00:00 [bluetooth]
root    2197     1  0 07:27 ?     00:00:00 /usr/sbin/bluetoothd --udev
tfraser 2631     1  0 07:27 ?     00:00:00 kbluetooth -session
tfraser 2657  2543  0 07:28 ?     00:00:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/kblueplugd
mfraser 4006  3972  0 14:21 pts/1 00:00:00 grep blue
