[Bug 874512] [NEW] [bluetooth/detect] test should not report a fail and trigger apport when run

Public bug reported:

Doing a cert run and discovered that when bluetooth/detect fails
(because no bluetooth device is found) it causes a failure and allows
the user to fire apport.

This behaviour needs to be changed, and is a good example of why I
would prefer checkbox be able to handle more than just pass and fail
return codes.  If we had another return code, we could have checkbox
mark this and NOT fire apport_prompt and just go on.

Ultimately, with Ubuntu Friendly in mind, I think this is going to be
confusing to users and aggravating to bug triagers as it will prompt
users to unnecessarily file bugs (against bluez in this case)
