Package: bluez
Version: 5.36-1
Severity: normal

When I turn on my bluetooth headset and connect, very rarely does the sound on
my computer automatically switch from speakers to headset.  I have to turn
bluetooth off and on several times and connect and disconnect my headset
several times before the sound will switch to the headset.  It usually
eventually will switch.  I am running gnome and have pulseaudio.  The headset
is ARCTIC P253 BT and the profile I am using is High Fidelity Playback(A2DP
Sink).  When the sound does not switch from speakers to headset, headset does
not even show up in the pulse Output as an option so I can't even manually
choose it.

It would be nice if this just worked reliably.
