Ok to attempt to recreate i disconnected my keyboard, and deleted the
trust. I can now not reconnect using the applet as it crashed with an
out of memory error in a call to dbus (checking for a valid path for a
setting iirc). This error is reported against gnome-bluetooth as a bug
here (Bug #179399).
I dont know if there are otherwise any errors in the bluetooth stack so
as a temporary workaround i installed the recompiled current package
from Elliot and connected manually using "sudo hidd --search" with my
device in pairing mode. It is now functional but obviously not the way
it should be setup.
This leads me to the following shaky conclusion:
Except for the desired but optional inclusion of the old binaries (was
pand or similar functionality available in the normal binary of bluez-
utils?) the bluetooth stack seems functional and this is evidenced by
our ability to connect via the hidd binary. once bug in the bluetooth-
properties applet is fixed hopefully we will be able to register and
maintain persistent bt connections using the new and suggested dbus
method via the applet.
