I've solved my problem (with a bluetooth headset) by adding the following repository and upgrading all bluez-related (bluez*, bluetooth, libbluetooth3). It will upgrade the bluez 4.27. Now works discover, pairing (using bluetooth-applet)... Etc.

So, step by step:

1) Add the repositories

deb http://philip.magicalforest.se/ intrepid extra
deb-src http://philip.magicalforest.se/ intrepid extra

2) Add the repo's GPG sig

wget http://philip.magicalforest.se/Philip5.gpg | sudo apt-key add

3) Update the repository using Synaptic or apt-get update

4) Mark the upgrades to bluez*, bluetooth, libbluetooth3

5) Apply

Afterwards, just restart the service (sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth
restart) and everything working again. You can test by using the
following command:

aplay -D bluetooth /usr/share/sounds/question.wav
