------
bluetooth-wizard application only allows 4digit pin code as a custom fixed pin when pairing.
According to bluetooth spec pin code may be up to 16bytes utf-8 characters.
for more information see:
BLUETOOTH SPECIFICATION Version 2.1 + EDR
Volume 3, Part C, 3.2.3 Bluetooth passkey (Bluetooth PIN)

I am seeing this too. Using Ubuntu 9.04 amd64 desktop, bluez-gnome 1.8-0ubuntu5.

This bug makes it very difficult to connect to Arduino BT, as it uses 5-digit pin by default.

summary: - bluetooth-wizard only allows 4digit pin as custom pin
+ bluetooth-wizard only allows 4digit pin as custom pin [regression]
