Pairing is too difficult, and fails randomly. File receive worked for
me once, but last time I needed it, it didn't work. No error messages,
that's the fun part. If only there were diagnostics; strace and packet
dumps are useful at work, but it would be nice to not have to use them
at home too.
There was no point in putting error reports in bugzilla -- I would
have to write something like "the pairing tool isn't working", but
there IS no pairing tool.
I have cut down my bluetooth usage to just ppp to a cell phone. This
works most of the time. (With at most a few tries and perhaps a phone
reboot, but then it is an Ericsson.)
