Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-bluetooth

Installed Natty on a Dell Vostro 1530. For some reason, the bluetooth-applet icon is appearing in the panel even though the system does not have bluetooth.

According to bluez:
ubuntu@201010-6649:~$ bluez-test-adapter
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/bluez-test-adapter", line 23, in <module>

hwcert tag added for reference, this isn't necessarily a blocker, just makes for confusing user experience.

Here's a screen shot showing the bt indicator

Small cosmetic issue, although it would be nice to be looked at.

you should only use blocks-hwcert if indeed is a blocker.
