Obviously, you can select "Always accept files from this device" in the
dialogue. Otherwise, each device has its own GConf key to check whether
to accept all files. It's at "/system/bluetooth/device/<bluetooth

We could have a setting to allow all devices, although I would guess it
would be a bad idea security-wise. Feel free to file a bug in the GNOME
bugzilla if you'd like that added.
