Jaunty 64Bit - Dell E6500

Bluetooth behaviour has changed. Under 8.10 the Dell Bluetooth radio had
to be off during the boot up and then turned on. From then on Bluetooth
mostly worked. Under Jaunty its the exact opposite. The bluetooth radio
MUST be on during the boot up phase.

I built a new Jaunty 64 and from alpha 6 it appeared that Bluetooth was
fixed. However it has reverted to a new incantation over the various
updates to Beta and then RC and Production.

Now bluetooth mostly only works (ie can send files or use Gnome Phone
Manager) if I connect from the Phone to the Laptop via anyremote first.
So what I have to do it start anyremote via ganyremote - then I start
Anyremote on my Nokia 6233 and then I can disconnect if I want too
(don't have to) and then the Laptop can successfully communicate with
the phone.

I updated to latest Blues 4.36 from 4.32 no change
