this unfortunately doesn't help you much but minne (ThinkOutSide
stowaway), just connects.  Well after the initial trust dance, which
you seem to have done.  You're not in "offline mode" are you?

My BlueTooth  icon is always there unless I'm in off line mode adn
does auto connect to any trusted device in range (my keyboard or GPS).

:I seem to remember seeing that, but assumed it wasn't meaningful, as I

Again without any changes both Fn keys worked for me.  This under
OS2007 and OS2008.
