Description of problem:
After the current software upgrade to bluez, I've lost bluetooth.  I installed a fresh copy of fc15 beta, and out of the box I had no bluetooth.  I played around and used "systemctl enable bluetooth.service" to get the bluetooth daemon to start automatically.  I had to manually start bluetooth-applet and for a while I had an active bluetooth light on my laptop and a bluetooth icon in gnome-shell.  I had hooked up a bluetooth mouse.

After a software upgrade on 4/19/2011 I lost bluetooth again and the above steps don't activate it either.  "systemctl status bluetooth.service" reports:

bluetooth.service - Bluetooth Manager
	  Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service)
	  Active: active (running) since Wed, 20 Apr 2011 04:18:21 -0700; 28min ago
	Main PID: 1013 (bluetoothd)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/bluetooth.service
		  └ 1013 /usr/sbin/bluetoothd -n

And when I start bluetooth-applet manually on the command line it just hangs reporting nothing.

bluetooth-applet wouldn't do anything because gnome-shell has its own implementation, and we don't want both the gnome-shell and the bluetooth-applet showing up at the same time.

In any case, bug should be fixed in an update shortly.
