Bluetooth mouse stops working

My Bluetooth mouse will disconnect when it's idle, and reconnect. It appears as a new device...
$ dmesg | grep Mouse | tail -3
input: Bluetooth Mouse as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb3/3-1/3-1.1/3-1.1:1.0/bluetooth/hci0/hci0:12/input87
input: Bluetooth Mouse as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb3/3-1/3-1.1/3-1.1:1.0/bluetooth/hci0/hci0:11/input88
input: Bluetooth Mouse as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb3/3-1/3-1.1/3-1.1:1.0/bluetooth/hci0/hci0:12/input89
The X server doesn't always seem to pick it up when it returns, though. I have to switch VT away and then back again.
Further investigation shows that it _is_ coming back of its own accord if I'm patient enough; it just seems to take a very long time.
We never remove the device unless HAL tells us to. it gets disabled, which is why it comes back when VT switching (VT switch disables all devices, and then re-enables them when coming back).
I guess the main question is why we don't get the device removed messages from HAL because that is what's messing us up here.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
