just upgraded to 13.10.  bluetooth is now totally useless.

adding device: timeouts if you tick for dun networking

selecting browse files from bluetooth indicator: does nothing at all.
does not even open nautilus

sending files: GDBus.error.org.openobex.Error.Failed:Unable to request

trying to send file from phone: fails

bluetooth-applet: missing from package


to satya: do not try to use rfcomm. it's utterly broken, crashes the
system and the crash happens in such a way that it is delayed wrt the
actual issue causing it. for seconds, maybe minutes, your kernel works
with data areas that may get rewritten with garbage. scary. may lead to
severe data loss. now fixed in kernel 3.12 but fix will not be
backported and ubuntu does not even ack that there is a bug and keeps
resetting bug report to unconfirmed/incomplete state.
