[maemo-users] Another annoyance: bluetooth icon disappears

Wonderful... yet another "wontfix" response to usability issues...

One problem is that putting the device in offline mode disables
bluetooth, but taking it out of offline mode usually doesn't re-enable
bluetooth (at least 75% of the time on my N800). Another is that any
situation where the other device is the main physical interaction
(headset, keyboard, etc.), it has no ability to turn on the bluetooth.
Sure, if some app on the tablet itself asks for bluetooth it can get
it, but not external devices. There *does* need to be a quick way to
access the bluetooth settings.

The only workable mode right now if one uses any bluetooth devices at
all is to always leave bluetooth turned on. It's much too big a PITA
to go through the many levels of the Control Panel to turn on
bluetooth every time you need it, even if it's infrequently.
