unable to connect to sdp session

Bug Description

I am trying to pair a non-official PS3 controller via bluetooth to my raspberry pi (using Xbian 1.0RC1), although I've also tried it in my Ubuntu 13.10 laptop. It is recognised by the system as: SHENGHIC 2009/0708ZXW-V1Inc. PLAYSTATION(R)3Conteroller

Using a USB cable the controller works. Under some circumstances, the controller is able to pair via bluetooth and I can see the keystrokes with the hcidump command, but jstest doesn't report a single keystroke.

I compiled sixad from QtSixA-1.5.1-src.tar.gz on sourceforge. I am configuring it in a headless server, so no Qt packages are used.

This is the result of the sixad --start command:

xbian@xbian ~ $ sudo /usr/bin/sixad --start
sixad-bin[2863]: started
sixad-bin[2863]: sixad started, press the PS button now
sixad-bin[2863]: Server mode active, will start search now
sixad-bin[2863]: One event received
sixad-bin[2863]: unable to connect to sdp session
sixad-bin[2863]: Will initiate Sixaxis now
sixad-bin[2863]: One event proccessed
sixad-sixaxis[2869]: started

.... and after a while (5-10 minutes)

sixad-sixaxis[3428]: Connected 'PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller (00:1E:3D:DE:41:02)' [Battery 00]
sixad-sixaxis[3428]: Read loop was broken on the Sixaxis process
sixad-sixaxis[3428]: Closing uinput...
sixad-sixaxis[3428]: uinput_close()::ioctl(UI_DEV_DESTROY) - success!
sixad-sixaxis[3428]: uinput_close()::close(fd) - success!
sixad-sixaxis[3428]: Done

During all this time, the controller is vibrating.

Thank you for your time and I hope you can cast some light on this issue
