Even more interesting is an upstream gnome-bluetooth bug report .
As I understand it, the pulseaudio module module-bluetooth-discover 
is responsible for detecting available bluetooth audio devices using
BlueZ. GDM starts a pulseaudio process  before the user does and
module-bluetooth-discover in fact works - but for the GDM pulseaudio
process, not the one that gets started with X11.
I verified that by connecting my bluetooth speakers in GDM (I can
connect to the last used paired device with a button). After connecting
the speakers, GDM used them for audio output immediately.
When I comment out module-bluetooth-discover in /etc/pulse/default.pa
as described in Comment 1 in the upstream gnome-bluetooth bug report
 and then add it to /usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11, the bluetooth
speakers get detected without any problems and are listed in gnome-
control-center audio settings.
So in my view this is no BlueZ bug. I think it would make sense to
reassign it to PulseAudio.
