Everything works fine on exactly the same hardware booted into
Windows, with both phones that are from completly different
manufacturers (Sony Ericsson and HTC), between the two phones
independent of a computer, and to/from my newly purchased MacBook
(tested yesterday but only with the SE), therefore I really don't
think that this is a failure of the phone firmware (but might poke
around the SE developer forums anyway).

Didn't think about the BlueZ list, will try that next week when I have
time to fiddle again, just came here first as it was the first place
that came to mind.
