[Pkg-bluetooth-maintainers] Bug#381582: invalid passkey error

Package: bluez-utils
Version: 3.1-3.1
Severity: normal

I have an older version (2.19-1) of bluez-utils installed on a
different computer, and that works perfectly. However, when I tried
installing it recently on my laptop, I was not able to make a
connection from the laptop to my mobile phone. When I try to create
the connection (with "obexftp -b 00:0A:28:52:2B:74 -l"), the mobile
asks for a passkey. However, when I enter the number contained in the
files /etc/bluetooth/pin, and /etc/bluetooth/passkeys/default, and
/etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf (the same number is in each file), the phone
says "Invalid PIN". I don't know what has changed.
