Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-bluetooth

Trying to send a file to my Nokia 6500c with bluetooth-sendto (gnome-bluetooth 2.30.0-0ubuntu2) succeeds but does not terminate after the transfer. The transfer window with the "Cancel" button remains on screen until closed manually. The BT connection seems to be still open, as my mobile asks me whether I want to close it when shutting BT down.

$ bluetooth-sendto --device 00:12:34:56:78:9A ~/Documents/something.txt
** (bluetooth-sendto:21374): DEBUG: Unhandled UUID 00005001-0000-1000-8000-0002ee000001 (0x5001)

(The very same thing, minus the terminal debug output, happens when I try to send the file via the Bluetooth button / Send files to device ... in the Gnome Panel.)

A GDB session doesn't really tell much besides we're in some glib main loop, waiting in poll():

Could you install obexd-client from ~bluetooth ppa and confirm the issue is fixed.

I'm also affected by this bug. Would be nice, if you'll fix it Baptiste.

Baptiste, I can confirm this issue is fixed by installing obexd-client from ~bluetooth ppa (and rebooting, or probably just restarting obexd by other means). Thank you very much :-)

I confirm the fix available in the branch lp:~bluetooth/ubuntu/lucid/obexd/lp_559412 fix the issue

For the SRU reviewers:

Impact is really low.
Upstream developers rewrote the whole obex session in the version 0.23 (too intrusive), but I prefer using the version in 0.21 (Fedora did the same).
Patch is available in the branch linked
TEST CASE: Send a file using bluetooth applet, the dialog never disappeared after transfer completed.

Martin Pitt (pitti) wrote :

The patch is a bit tricky to read since it moves the entire function to a different place. But in essence it removes the g_dbus_add_disconnect_watch() call. Does session->owner_watch have a sensible value without that call?

Anyway, please upload, since the patch was tested already. But an additional explanation why this is the right thing would be nice. Thanks!

Accepted obexd into lucid-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Martin, no need to copy this version to Maverick, there is a new
upstream version which fix this issue.
(there is a pending review request).
