interesting, can you confirm that after /etc/init.d/bluetooth stop you can't use
your keyboard anymore? I guess this is related to #355497.
I'm  more and more inclined to remove stop_hid from init script to avoid this
problems since we can't know in advance which keyboard works and which doesn't
(you can't even ask the user "is your keyboard working? [y/n]", that would be
too much windows-like :)
