Bug Description

Note - I'm having this problem on Xubuntu 11.10 - apologies if this is in the wrong place.

1) Built-in bluetooth
onebir@dell640m:~/Desktop$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 11.10
Release: 11.10
onebir@dell640m:~/Desktop$ lsusb | grep -i bluetooth
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 413c:8103 Dell Computer Corp. Wireless 350 Bluetooth
onebir@dell640m:~/Desktop$ hcitool dev
Devices:
 hci1 00:16:41:57:F5:55
onebir@dell640m:~/Desktop$ sudo hcitool scan

Looks ok, so decided to go through BluetoothSetup in Ubuntu docs (using 11.04 instructions, latest available):
onebir@dell640m:~$ sudo apt-get install bluez python-gobject python-dbus

# But what are the newest versions...
onebir@dell640m:~$ apt-cache show bluez python-gobject python-dbus |egrep "Package|Version"
