Well IMHO it affects all bluetooth connections and the problem is 
elsewhere. I haven't tested my bluetooth keyboard over kbdd with closed 
cover yet, but pand/bnep bluetooth connection works fine with cover 
closed. Also there is little diference between bluetooth network over 
phone and gps connected. Both are using serial rfcomm connection so it 
is unlikely one is working and the other is not.

Isn't this user software problem? i.e. maemo mapper or other gps sw 
going to sleeep properly when cover is closed and display/keys is turned 
off. This is recommended way of doing things to save power.
