This should be fixed in newer kernels. It was a refcounting problem in
the BlueZ stack.

2.6.22-rc3 and later have the fixes (maybe earlier ones too, but I saw
the exact same problem, and 2.6.22-rc3 fixed it). The bluez-users
mailing-list might be a better place to ask this sort of question in the
future, as Marcel, the BlueZ kernel maintainer hangs out there.
