It does - but only for the duration of the current session.  After 
re-boot, this setting reverts to the default in which Bluetooth is 
turned on.  Personally, I think it's state ought to be remembered, but 
this is definitely not the case.  I gather from searches online that 
loads of questions have been asked about this but so far nothing has 
been done.  At least now I have a solution.
