Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnome-bluetooth

This bug was apparently present in Karmic as well (bug #429523), but as
this is occurring on Maverick I thought I should report a new bug.  When
starting bluetooth-wizard or bluetooth-properties the application fails
to launcher with an "assertion failure".  Below is what I see in the

$ bluetooth-wizard 

(bluetooth-wizard:4352): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: cannot register
existing type `BluetoothClient'

(bluetooth-wizard:4352): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_once_init_leave: assertion
`initialization_value != 0' failed

I don't know if there are any other debugging tools I can use.  I'll try to get a trace w/ gdb.  If I turn off bluetooth I do get a dialog, but of course it just tells me there are no bluetooth adapters present.
