Comment 7 for bug 1181106

If I understand well there are 2 bugs ?
#1 A2DP profile not selectable by Pulseaudio when Socket mode is activated. On Bluez side according David, on Pulseaudio side according James.
#2 device that can't be paired when Socket mode is not activated, probably on Bluez side

If the Bluez team deprecated Socket mode, then we should probably focus on the second bug ?

Am I wrong ?
