Just want to mention that 
sudo hidd --search is a workaround that somewhat works...

What I want to say with that:

The mouse pairs only after first I turn off the mouse, wait 5 seconds
(untill the green light comes off) then I press the Discovery button.
Mouse works for a maximum of 30 minutes, sometimes less than 1 minute
(it's not stable/usable).

Mouse doesn't reconnect after it disconnects or upon reboot, hidd
--search returns connection not allowed (someting like that) even if I
press the discovery button again. Only way to make it reconnect is to
turn mouse OFF completely then start again... Don't need to restart
bluetooth service.

I don't think this behavior is worth opening another bug, Bluez-compat
is a deprecated package already, but without it the mouse does not
connect at all ?!

I'm using a PS3/Jaunty 9.04 final with Microsoft Notebook 5000 mouse. I
don't know how/what info to provide you but I'm willing to help if
someone is willing to guide me!
