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

My logitech cordless elite bluetooth hub connects with USB.
When you get the first login prompt, just pull out the USB plug, wait a second or two and plug it back in. Both your keyboard and mouse will then wake up. Tadaaa!

I fully agree that this is the most pathetically tedious bug I have ever seen. It probably also causes the most bad press for Linux as every bluetooth user will get caught by it.
Surely the relevant developers can see from the amount of threads and postings on this subject, that it is a critical bug?

Guys (that's the developers out there), if you want to rule the world so
you dont' have to keep looking out a window, clean up the visible bugs.

No one cares about the esoteric and deep down inside security bugs (ok,
until they get caught out) that the Linux brain-surgeons fix. It's about
visibility, not what is good and correct - Just ask our president elect:
Mr Zuma ;-)
