Description of problem:
Running gnome-bluetooth on a machine without a bluetooth handler I get the

/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/gnomebt/manager.py:142: DeprecationWarning:
gnome.ui.AppBar constructor takes exactly 3 arguments, but calling old gtk.HBox
constructor for compatibility reasons.
  self.statusbar = gnome.ui.AppBar (True, True)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/gnomebt/manager.py", line 274, in ?
    BTManager ().main ()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/gnomebt/manager.py", line 85, in __init__
    if not self.btctl.is_initialised():
gobject.GError: Can't get device id of hci0

Maybe a check would be nice and a clean abort if hciX is not found?
