You have been subscribed to a public bug:

My bluetooth device is recognised by the operating system. I can flip
the on/off switch for bluetooth/wireless on my laptop and Jaunty
responds accordingly, adding or removing the bluetooth and wireless
icons from the panel at the top.

Wireless works perfectly but the Bluetooth Device Wizard is unable to
detect any other bluetooth devices (I tried with 2 mobile phones)
although the devices are broadcasting (and can be detected in Windows).

In a terminal, When I type:

hcitool scan

I get:

Scanning ...
Inquiry failed: Connection timed out

When I choose 'Always Visible' and add a friendly name in Bluetooth
Preferences, the computer cannot be found by other bluetooth devices
either (I tried this with 2 phones as well).

I get this message everytime I hibernate when the laptop's
bluetooth/wireless switch is on:

[708. 629316] btusb_intr_complete: hci0 urb f61cf400 failed to resubmit  (1)
[708. 630313] btusb_intr_complete: hci0 urb f61cfc00 failed to resubmit  (2)
[708. 630321] btusb_intr_complete: hci0 urb f61cfa80 failed to resubmit  (1)
[711. 190381] NOHZ: local_softirq_pending 100

(The numbers in the square brackets vary and so do the hexadecimal
numbers after 'urb'.)

And when the bluetooth/wireless switch is off, I only get the following

[360. 930790] NOHZ: local_softirq_pending 100

(Only the numbers in the square brackets vary.)

I will attach the output of dmesg, lspci -vvnn.
