Thumbs down Bluetooth headset disconnects (?) after pairing with kbluetooth (no dongle support?)


Hello!
I'm running Slackware with 2.6.26 kernel.
I've got bluez-utils,libs version 3.26 (Slackware 12.1 precompiled package), and kdebluetooth.
I'm using a Digicom Palladio Usb Bluetooth adapter.
In general, bluetooth seems to work; I can send files to my Nokia phone.
Now, I've got this Bluetooth stereo headset (brand rather unknown, and I've thrown the package away, I've only got the little user manual, and there is no indication on who built this thing).

This is what I've tried so far:
- turn the headset on and turned pairing mode on;
- kbluetooth -> Configuration -> Input devices (input?) -> Search;
- kbluetooth finds the headset and asks that I insert the pin code; a little star appears next to the name of the headset ("Stereo Headset"), but after a couple of seconds disappears and at the same time I hear a beep coming from the headset (disconnection?). Anyway, just before the beep, noise came from the headset (as if it had turned on), then, after the beep, nothing.
- Important thing: the headset manual says the Usb dongle must support A2DP and AVRCP. I don't know how to find out whether my dongle supports them, anyway, if I execute 'sdptool', in the "Services" section I get:

Code:
        DID SP DUN LAN FAX OPUSH FTP PRINT HS HF HFAG SAP NAP GN PANU
        HCRP HID KEYB WIIMOTE CIP CTP A2SRC A2SNK AVRCT AVRTG UDIUE UDITE
        SEMCHLA SR1 SYNCML SYNCMLSERV ACTIVESYNC HOTSYNC PALMOS NOKID
        PCSUITE NFTP NSYNCML NGAGE APPLE ISYNC
Does this mean that bluez/my usb dongle doesn't support A2DP?
- Anyway, I followed the instructions on "Bluez - Trac - AudioDevices" (http://wiki.bluez.org/wiki/HOWTO/AudioDevices) and added the specified part to .asoundrc. Of cource, even if I tell xine to use "bluetooth" as pcm device, it says the device is unknown.

Does anyone have any suggestion?
Thanks!

Maybe the previous post is quite confusing, and it's probably better to face the problem step by step.
First of all: is there any way to find out which services my Bluetooth adapter (Digicom Palladio Usb 100M) supports?

edit: I changed the thread title, should be clearer now...
edit 2: actually, I only changed the first post's title :-(
