  On this EeePC 1001PXD, title says it all... :/
  Doing cert testing of Oneiric on the system.  Bluetoothd is running,
  hcitool shows a device, but I can't actually do anything with it.  If I
  click on the bluetooth applet icon, I get an abbreviated menu and the
  only options are Turn Bluetooth Off and Preferences.  It says Bluetooth
  is on...
  If I look at the preferences, it says "Bluetooth is disabled" and when I
  try moving the slider from off to on, it just flips back to off.
