bluetooth mouse disabled during upgrades

Bug Description

When I use update-manager, very frequently my bluetooth mouse is disabled partway through the process, and reactivated near the end of the process. This is a minor annoyance for me since I also have a touchpad, but could be significant for a user with no other pointing device.

I suspect this is some sort of deferred processing during bluetooth upgrades, but since the lack of bluetooth can be problematic, I suggest that deferred processing is not appropriate in this case.

It certainly looks like the bluetooth service is stopped for a while:
