Public bug reported:

I am using Intrepid with all updates applied and trying to transfer
files between my Sony Ericsson T700 and my PC.

The BT dongle is detected fine - seen in 'hcitool dev'. I can see the
mobile if I do a 'hcitool scan' or 'hcitool inq'. I can also see my PC
from the mobile when I search for devices.

1. I can't pair from the PC, the BT applet's setup device wizard doesn't
show the phone.

2. I can pair from the phone - the BT applet prompts for the PIN and the
pairing occurs. But I when I try to connect from the phone (after
pairing), I get "Bluetooth Connection Failed" on the phone.

3. If I try to directly send a file from my phone to PC, it says no
devices found.

4. When I try to send a file from the PC to the phone,  a window pops up
saying 'org.openobex.Error.ConnectionAttemptFailed'.

5. When I try to browse files from the BT applet, I get a windows saying
'Could not display "obex://[00:22:98:DF:40:2C]/" - Error: Service search
failed (Device or resource busy) Please select another viewer and try

6. After pairing in step 2, if I search for services available (an option in the phone menu), I get:
Service supported:
Network access
Audio remote controller
Audio remote control target
