On an average writing speed, I loose 2/3 of all my keypresses. Sometimes
it feels like there is a system.

Another thing: I never get a popup-dialog trying to pair my device. The
README file (or perhaps the post on maemo-users, can't remember) claimed
that one should pop up when running btkbd (which of course just executes
kbdd and sets priority).
Maybe it is related to the fact that I did try to make a native pairing
using N800's bluetooth device manager before turning to kbdd. Obviously
that failed.
