[Bug 1449080] Re: Starting bluetooth service fails in 15.04

This seems to be related to the package sixad

When sixad is installed, it will autostart and it removes execution
permissions on /usr/sbin/bluetoothd on start. This prevents
bluetooth.service from starting.

-- Unit bluetooth.service has begun starting up.
jul 16 21:17:56 mainframe systemd[5337]: Failed at step EXEC spawning /usr/sbin/bluetoothd: Permission denied
-- Subject: Process /usr/sbin/bluetoothd could not be executed
johan at mainframe:~$ ls -la /usr/sbin/bluetoothd 
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 946920 apr 13 19:05 /usr/sbin/bluetoothd

If I manually set execute permissions on /usr/sbin/bluetoothd
bluetooth.service will start properly but will fail at next reboot. I
can start and stop the service as many times as I want to, but when I
start sixad (sixad --start) it will remove execution permission on
/usr/sbin/bluetoothd causing bluetooth.service to fail.

I have not yet found a solution to this.
