Public bug reported:

After pairing a device (Computer, Smartphone, etc.) to an Ubuntu 11.10
machine, it is not immediately possible to send a file to the device
over bluetooth.

Ubuntu 11.10 AMD64, using bluez 4.96-0ubuntu4.

3: Upon initiating the file transfer, the file should be sent to the
remote device.

4: Upon initiating the file transfer, an error message appears
indicating "Connection Refused (111)". Subsequently retrying several
times in quick succession will transfer the file.
