There are no related errors in /var/log/messages and restarting the bluetooth service injects no messages into the log.
I notice there are no bluez messages in dmesg which I would expect to see?
Also there's no bluetooth file in /etc/sysconfig which I would also expect to see, there is an appropriate bluetooth script in the /etc/rc.d directories.
It turns out the specific CAB-200 I was using had developed a fault, when I switched it for another unit everything worked as it should.
