Same for me.  I am trying to pair with a BT-Q880 GPS receiver and
obviously, there is no way to enter a PIN so bluetooth in Intrepid is
now useless for anything except keyboards.

What is surprising about this bug is that keyboards and phones are the
only bluetooth devices on which you can normally enter a PIN so if this
had been tested on any other device (eg mice, GPS, headsets etc) then
the bug would have been immediately apparent.

There have been extensive changes to bluetooth in Intrepid which so far
have had two major drawbacks (in addition to this bug, blueman no longer
works at all and I like it a lot better than the built-in bluetooth
utilities) and no advantages.  I dare say that there was a good reason
for the changes and I appreciate all the hard work that the devs have
put into this, but the end result is a big step backward from Hardy.
