Bug Description

If a bluetooth connection disconnects uncleanly, eg. by walking away from your laptop with your phone in your pocket, then you cannot reconnect without rebooting.

1) Connect via bluetooth
2) Go to lunch
3) Come back to discover network disconnected, but still greyed out in the network manager indicator
4) Further notice the 'invisible' menu item that actually lets you reconnect
5) After selecting, network seems to reconnect but an obviously corrupt message is displayed and the network manager applet crashes, disappearing from the indicators and not reappearing.
