[Bug 839157] Re: Bluetooth applet (OBEX send/browse) does not work since Natty (after bluetoothd 4.84 exactly)

I checked if my bug is solved with 12.04 - unfortunately it is not. I
tested with the daily iso from April 21th which has kernel 3.2.0-23
-generic-pae. I have attached the output of hcidump, which looks pretty
different than my initial dump on Natty. But the workaround (replacing
/usr/sbin/bluetoothd 4.98 with 4.84) still works! (but 4.84 still has
those sporadic 30sec delays)

I consider this a strong evidence that:
* This bug is not a duplicate of bug 872044: symptoms and workaround are different and this bug exists since Natty, 872044 since Oneiric (see comment 4 there). And the fix for 872044 is included in 3.2.0-19.30, but this bug is still exists with 3.2.0-23.
* This bug is not caused by a hardware flaw: it has a software-only workaround (see bug description). The same hardware works with Ubuntu Maverick and before, and even with WinXP.

@Mathieu: I could be wrong, so what makes you think that this could be a
duplicate of 872044? And what exactly do you mean by "some may not
support changing the mode"? What mode?
