Hi Martin.

First of all: I have never tried  bluetooth mouse.  Only played a bit around
with my  mobile phone and bluetooth.

That is because the option "-p 000" is a default in MS.  We have no
defaults for
 btpin as far as I can read the manual..

For me, this seems normal.  With my USB wireless dongle, I also stop
and start i.e.
restart whenever I forget to connect.

I am not certain, what you mean. have you set  "btpin -p 0000" when these
"dmesg" appear?
