Bug Description

After installing from a live-cd session when given a hostname to the machine, the hostname is applied, but for some reason the live cd hostname "ubuntu-0" is being shown in the bluetooth settings instead of the user's chosen hostname.

Also: the name gets reset to "ubuntu-0" after reboots when you change it manually with "hciconfig"

As a work around, I have done the following.

I added the following into rc.local
hciconfig hci0 name $HOSTNAME

OK well that worked on the command line but not in the rc.local :(

Maybe the $HOSTNAME variable isn't present when rc.local gets executed, or maybe the command gets executed, but when the Bluetooth managers starts it changes that again to the wrong hostname?

Restarting bluetooth does set it back to ubuntu-0 again. So it seems a fix would be to put that into the bluetooth startup process perhaps.
