This is not properly a bug, it's related to how btpd works in Ubuntu
(see /usr/share/doc/btpd/README.Debian).

btpd runs as a system daemon with its own user, you should use the init script to control it:

sudo /etc/init.d/btpd stop -> kill
sudo /etc/init.d/btpd start -> launch
sudo /etc/init.d/btpd restart -> first kill then launch again

However, I understand this is not very user-friendly. I'm thinking of a better way to force users to manage the daemon correctly. Any suggestion is welcome.
