rfcomm0 (BT) and udev problem in FC3


I want to set up bluetooth connection with my T610. I had got it working in FC1 (using this thread) and I can get it working in FC3, but not the way I want it to. I'm using a Belkin bluetooth dongle.

This is what I did in FC1 to create a rfcomm0 device:
cd /dev
mknod --mode 660 /dev/rfcomm0 c 216 0
chown root:demigod rfcomm0
After any number of FC1 reboots, if I do ls -l /dev/rfcomm0, I get something like:

crw-rw----  1 root demigod .....  /dev/rfcomm0
But, when I create /dev/rfcomm0 in FC3 exactly as mentioned above, and then after a reboot I do ls -l /dev/rfcomm0, I get something like (The connection and everything else works with the phone when I access it as user sarav):
crw-------  1 sarav root .....  /dev/rfcomm0
It's bad enough for the permissions to change, but even the owner is changing to a non-root user!! I don't want that to happen. Also pressing a tab for auto completion when typing /dev/rf<tab> doesn't work. Looks like the rfcomm0 is created only when ls looks (or stats) for it.

How do I get it working like it did in FC1? I think this has something to do with udev. It will also be nice if someone can point me to a nice udev + new devices config HOWTO.
