[Bug 32415] Re: Bluetooth Mouse and Keyboard Broken in Dapper/Edgy/Feisty

After searching the internet for solutions to my particular bluetooth
problem, I've come across dozens of these bug reports. It's the same for
each one:

"My keyboard/mouse won't reconnect after reboot/suspend/idle."

And the response has been the same too:

"Try entering this into your configs and/or uninstall bluetooth
entirely." ('this' being a reference to instructions posted in one
particular thread I've been directed to about 12 separate times;

I've read through all these bug reports for a solution, tried the
workarounds--I'm still unable to get my keyboard or mouse to
consistently connect on boot. It's not a viable option for me to find
another keyboard every time I need to LOG IN. It wouldn't make me so
upset if this was a relatively new occurrence. It's not. It's been
around for a long while. Dapper, Feisty, Gusty, and now symptoms on
Hardy too. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought these bug reports were
supposed to fix bugs, not direct people to workarounds that don't work.

If there are so many reports, how is this problem not yet fixed? How is
this on the back burner, while other negligible problems are being
solved? Or maybe I'm the only one who needs a keyboard or mouse to
operate Ubuntu--I don't think that's the case, considering the
prevalence of laptops and wireless solutions touted in this modern age.
These problems need to be fixed, especially if usability is of concern

It's not very welcoming to boot into Linux, only to be greeted by a
login screen with no input method.
