Bluetooth mouse issues after upgrading to BlueZ 4 in -current
Am using Slackware64 -current on a HP EliteBook 8530w, coupled with HP Bluetooth Laser mouse. The mouse worked fine previously with BlueZ 3.x - I had only to run "hidd --search" (with the mouse put in discovery mode) once after installing Slackware, and it would get recognized, and working properly afterward. However, after yesterday upgrade to BlueZ 4.64, an issue started to occur with the mouse: whenever I reboot machine, or restart from suspend or hibernate, or even if I leave mouse unused over some period of time, the mouse get dropped, and then I have to turn it off, and then on again, put it into the discovery mode, and then re-run "hidd --search" in order to have it working again. Now, I tried to find some information on BlueZ site, but it is as un-informative as ever, so I'm wondering does anyone that eventually used BlueZ 4.x know how to have it to remember the mouse permanently, and re-connect when needed?
