> The PINs are in /etc/bluetooth/passkeys/default (this file was automatically created) and in the option named passkey of /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf. I also removed /etc/bluetooth/pin. Shouldn't a connection be refused even if those files or options were missing?

/etc/bluetooth/passkeys/default must contain a single string which is the
default outgoing pin.
the passkey option in hcid.conf is for incoming connections.
after modifying those files you must /etc/init.d/bluetooth stop and
/etc/init.d/bluetooth start

hope that helps,
