Default Bluetooth keyboard issue

Hi All,

I have recently purchased a bluetooth keyboard but am unable to
connect to it in Fedora. Reading some emails here it seems I am not
the only one

When I try to connect by clicking on 'Bluetooth Icon -> Browse
Device...' then selecting 'Device: BTKB-0030 Type: Keyboard' this
dialog error appears after about 20-30 seconds:

Couldn't display "obex://[00:18:00:00:11:19]/".
Error: Host down
Please select another viewer and try again.

After some googling I tried a command line tool, but with no success:

# hidd --connect 00:18:00:00:11:19
Can't get device information: Host is down

(It seems 'hidd' is obselete now, replaced by hcid?)

Is there some step I have missed? (I didn't find any filed bugs that
matched this description).
