Post Bluetooth in B2
I reported earlier a problem with my BT mouse on first login, and in chasing that down found out some interesting stuff.

Eventually went to System Settings > Input Devices > Mouse, where there was a tab for my mouse with an error message saying there might be a problem with permissions.

Opened KUser, double clicked my username > Groups tab, and saw that user was not a member of the Bluetooth group by default. Once I checked that, then I was able to browse my Droid and move files back and forth in Dolphin and or send them directly.

I will continue testing, but it looks like BT problems might be a lot less significant than we thought...

Sent this to Warren as well.

Confirmed here. Went from long delay with a silent exit (failure) to immediate unrestricted access with quick responses as I browsed the remote file system.
