Tested before upgrading to obex-data-server 0.4.3 - failed.

Tested after upgrading to obex-data-server 0.4.3 - SUCCESS.

I've built a package for obex-data-server 0.4.3 in my PPA:

The installation process is as follows...

1. Add my PPA (and key) to your apt/software sources and update (e.g.
sudo apt-get update).

2. Navigate to: System -> Preferences -> Personal File Sharing

Untick "Receive files in Downloads folder over Bluetooth"

(Leave the dialog open.)

2. Fire up a console, to make sure obex-data-server has been killed:-
$ kill `pidof obex-data-server`

(for some reason pkill didn't do the job)

3. Install the package
$ sudo apt-get install obex-data-server

4. Retick the "Receive files in Downloads folder over Bluetooth" option.

5. Attempt to send a file over bluetooth to your computer.

Hope this helps and thanks for the heads up!
