Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: bluez-gnome

I can "connect" anything to the machine just fine.

My mouse doesn't need any authorisation, but they keyboard does. To get
an authorisation request (through libnotify,apparantly) to pop-up I
first need to press a few keys on the keyboard.

But sometimes the notify-bubble will disappear instantly, sometimes it
won't. When you're finally able to push the "Enter Passkey" button the
resulting dialog mostly also crashes instantly!

I have no way to connect my keyboard now...

Oh, not to mention that it's VERY hard to type numbers in the
authorisation request WITHOUT A KEYBOARD!

Maybe a diall is needed in the dialog, so that people can "type" in the
numbers through there. (Right now I'm cutting and pasting "1234" in it,
should it work ...)
