  == Known workaround ==
  none (besides using Ubuntu Hardy)
  == Description ==
  Binary package hint: bluez-gnome
  using bluez-gnome version  1.8-0ubuntu1
  ubuntu 8.10 intrepid
  Tried to pair with a bluetooth headset.  Started bluetooth-wizard, with
  headset in pairing mode.  Headset detected OK and shown on the "Device
  search" display.  Selected it and clicked "Forward".  Under "Device
  setup", got message "setting up new device", then "Connecting to X3
  micro now".
  Then, "Please enter the following PIN code: 0000" flashed up and
  vanished, followed by "Pairing with X3 micro failed".
  In fact, because it's a headset, there is no way to enter a pin code on
  it, and I presume this is why the failure occurred.  What is needed is
  for the bluetooth-wizard to prompt for the headset's pin code and send
  that to the headset, rather than the other way around as is set up at
