Firstly, gnome-bluetooth is ace - works a treat for sending files to the

But I'm having trouble sending files from my P800 to gnome-obex-server. The
phone responds with "Failed to transfer entry to <hostname>". This is a bit
of a pest, and definately isn't a useful error message.

I have the following debian packages installed for bluez:

| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name           Version        Description
ii  bluez-hcidump  1.5-2          Analyses Bluetooth HCI packets
ii  bluez-pan      1.1rel-3       Personal area networking for Bluetooth devic
ii  bluez-pin      0.20-2         Bluetooth PIN helper with D-BUS support
ii  bluez-sdp      1.4-1          BlueZ Bluetooth SDP daemon and tool
ii  bluez-utils    2.3-2          Utilities for controlling Bluetooth devices

Services are all started. I'm running linux kernel 2.6.0-test4, and
everything else is fine aside from this little problem.

Any clues of what I'm missing? I'm fairly new to bluetooth, having received
a dongle only this morning.

Kind regards,
