It's possible that MacOS X has some sort of extension to the Obex
protocol, or uses something that we don't implement.

I don't have any Macs at hand, so I'll have to ask you to file a bug in
the GNOME bugzilla, and hopefully someone can test it, and fix it. Don't
forget to mention the version numbers for the Mac software you use.
