[gnome-bluetooth] Enabling serial rfcomm in gnome-bluetooth

Hey, I'm back for more.  I attached these two lines to my
/etc/rc.local in Fedora:

rfcomm bind all
chown [username]:root /dev/rfcomm0


But, at startup, the boot log says "chown:  cannot find /dev/rfcomm0".

When I finally login, there IS a file for the rfcomm0 device in /dev,
and chown works just fine, and then BitPim sees it.  But I can't seem
to get chown to work as part of the rc.local.  Are device files not
visible that early in the boot sequence?
