[Pkg-bluetooth-maintainers] Bug#384680: bluez-utils: cannot enable
authentication by a PIN

I connect 2 computers thanks to pand and I have noticed in
/var/log/daemon.log that no PIN request is made anymore.
The following describes the configuration:
* I set two different PINs on each computer to make sure that it is not
a log related change
* The configuration file hcid.conf is the one shipped with bluez-utils
(the option auth recently disappeared from this file)
* PAND_OPTIONS is set to "--listen --role PAN --devup
/etc/bluetooth/pan/dev-up --auth" on one computer and "--connect
AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF --role NAPU --devup /etc/bluetooth/pan/dev-up --auth"
on the other
* One computer is running Debian/testing (with bluez-utils 3.1-3.1) and
the other Debian/unstable (with bluez-utils 3.1-4).
I think --auth should demand that the peer authenticate itself (but I
could well be wrong since it isn't documented): it is not the case.
I tried to add `auth enable;' to /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf since it is
mentioned in hcid.conf (5): the option seems to be obsolete judging by
the following line appearing in /var/log/daemon.log:
Aug 24 11:17:44 localhost hcid: Unknown option 'auth' line 60
Please update the man page.
I also tried other pand options like --secure and --encrypt, but there
still isn't a PIN request for the computers connect to each other.
Please explain how to enable PIN authentication for a PAN connection and
possibly update the documentation or configuration files.
