Alright, but the bug report claims this issue has been fixed in Linux
2.6.29~rc3 and I am using 2.6.32-3. It doesn't work with 2.6.30-8 from
testing either, but this kernel is out of question anyway,
because /dev/rfkill has just been added in 2.6.31.
[If I could just find a package for a 2.6.31 kernel. It's high time for
a working Debian package archive like snapshot.d.n once was!]

Maybe it's a regression in Bluez, but I doubt, since downgrading to
4.42-2~bpo50+1 didn't help either.

Yes, hopefully. :)
