In the "names" file, "Apple Wireless Keyboard" is entered.

This does not seem to exist.  Neither in ~/.gconf2/... nor in

Sounds like a plan.  As long as enter the numbers, nothing happens.
Then pressing enter/return, the "Passcode" field gets blanked and the
cursor blinks...

And now, the miracle!  Entering some numbers with the N810 keys and then
repeating those on the BT keyboard resulted in paired devices!  I'm not
sure if I actually pressed enter/return on both devices.

Thanks for all your help!
