logitech BT Mini keybord and mouse

I run PCLinuxOS, and after an upgrade, my wireless keyboard & mouse failed to work. The result from lsusb:

Bus 004 Device 003: ID 046d:0b02 Logitech, Inc. BT Mini-Receiver (HID proxy mode)
Bus 004 Device 004: ID 046d:c70e Logitech, Inc. MX1000 Bluetooth Laser Mouse
Bus 004 Device 005: ID 046d:c70a Logitech, Inc. MX5000 Cordless Desktop
Bus 004 Device 006: ID 046d:c709 Logitech, Inc. BT Mini-Receiver (HCI mode)

The last line is causing the issue I think, when both HID proxy and HCI are active, neither work: when I enable KDE Bluetooth integration, no Bluetooth adapters are found.

Searching around, I understand that the issue comes from 70-hid2hci.rules in /lib/udev/rules.d:

# Logitech devices
KERNEL=="hiddev*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c70[35e]", \
RUN+="hid2hci --method=logitech-hid --devpath=%p"
KERNEL=="hidraw*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="046d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="c70[4abc]|c71[34bc]", \
RUN+="hid2hci --method=logitech-hid --devpath=%p"

this file was changed in the last update of bluez (completely reworked, more accurately).

So my question: did I get it right? And if yes, how can I configure my system that this hid2hci conversion is not done? Assuming that this will then cause the superfluous usb device NOT to be created?

I am stomped ...

After the switch of mirrors of PCLinuxOS, somehow the bluetooth packages were all reinstalled, leading to the activation of the BT Mini as a Bluetooth access point in both HID and HCI which means that neither work.

Removing all the bluetooth packages restored the simple keyboard and mouse functionality.

No idea on how to activate both the bluetooth and keyboard/mouse but I don't need that ...
