Slackware64 13 and BlueZ woes part 2 ... maybe issues with main.conf

I followed the protocol explained here, but I seem to still have problems of my own.

The pin 1234 seems to get accepted but still disconnects for some reason.
Here's the message I get when I try to connect to my cell phone:
note: is a made up address
bash-3.1# whoami
bash-3.1# obexftp -b -l
Browsing ...
Tried to connect for 480ms
Receiving "(null)"...\<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE folder-listing SYSTEM "obex-folder-listing.dtd"
 [ <!ATTLIST folder mem-type CDATA #IMPLIED> ]>
<folder-listing version="1.0">

    <folder name="Receiv. files" created="20060101T000000" user-perm="R" mem-type="DEV"/>

and my syslog output:
Oct 22 20:45:18 obwan hcid[6504]: Parsing /etc/bluetooth/main.conf failed: No such file or directory
Oct 22 20:45:18 obwan hcid[6504]: Failed to listen on control channel

I did everything cgorac and 0rphu did. Obviously, it's probably because I don't have a main.conf file. This is a vanilla install of slackware64 13 just like cgorac and 0rphu. I'm having trouble finding more information on main.conf. According to Google, it seems there was a bug where main.conf man page(s) are missing. How could I find the man page for main.conf?

This didn't work
# man main.conf

Well, I feel retarded. It seems like the obexftp command worked looking back at the command more carefully.

Status update:

I was able to download and delete a file on my Nokia 6103b using obexftp, but the command seems to freeze my key prompt, even when I boot up in text mode and never go into gui, and also prevents me from shutting down the computer.

I'm still need to figure out main.conf.

If someone has done an upgrade for the bluez and related packages, I'd appreciate a posting.

Although there are still a bunch of things for me to figure out, I'm going to set this specific post to resolved.
