Please see attached screenshot.

blueman-manager to pair an Acer bluetooth keyboard with random passkey pairing.

Notice that GUI displays a 4 digit passkey (7092).
But the blueman-manager console text properly prints "DisplayPassKey(_, 116372)", "RequestConfirmation(_, 116372).

Entering the 6 digit number from the console results in successful pairing.
I feel that the GUI is incorrect.
