Cannot connect phones with bluetooth log shows segfault with gvfsd-obexftp

Mandriva 2010.1, Gnome 2.30.0, the bluez rpm package is bluez-4.64-1mdv2010.1.src.rpm, the obexftp package is obexftp-0.23-4mdv2010.1.src.rpm. When trying to connect either my Motorola EM330 or my wife's Nokia 2600 to the computer to transfer files from the phones to the computer I get the below:

gvfsd-obexftp[7583]: segfault at 8 ip
080521a0 sp bff625e0 error 4 in gvfsd-obexftp[8048000+28000

I can however open up a file browser and copy files from the computer to the phones. A complete log entry is shown below:

localhost bluetoothd[7519]:
Parsing /etc/bluetooth/serial.conf failed: No such file or directory
localhost bluetoothd[7519]: probe failed with driver
input-headset for device /org/bluez/7514/hci0/dev_00_21_FE_89_34_0A
localhost bluetoothd[7519]: Adapter /org/bluez/7514/hci0
has been enabled
localhost kernel: gvfsd-obexftp[7583]: segfault at 8 ip
080521a0 sp bff625e0 error 4 in gvfsd-obexftp[8048000+28000

I've checked in some of my backups prior to installing Mandriva 2010.1 and there was no /etc/bluetooth/serial.conf file nor can I find one on my system. I had no problems with this in Mandriva 2010.0. I've opened a bug at Mandriva bugzilla on 0 7/31, however there have been no responses to it yet. Is there anything I can check to try and isolate the problem?
