Public bug reported:

I have a Nokia BH-504 bluetooth headset and Ubuntu Karmic.
Via blueman-applet (I try 1.10 and 1.20 versions) I can successfully add and pair the bluetooth headset, but can't connect A2DP sink profile (and Headset Service too).
When I try to connect, it tries, but show the error "Connection Failed: Stream setup failed".
In /var/log/daemon.log I see the record at same time:
Sep 27 17:09:33 kit bluetoothd[1940]: Permission denied (13)

This record shows each time when I try to connect.

I try to pair and connect via priveleged users, via kdesudo, via root user and always see the permission error.
On Windows I have succesfully connected this headset and computer.

At now I have:
bluez 4.51-0ubuntu2
blueman 1.20+r496+200909251843~karmic

Which permissions does bluetoothd needs? How I can give him this
