OK - I finally got my BT mouse to work and be recognised after reboot.

I fiddled for ages but then right clicking on the kbluetooth icon in
the system tray I clicked on input devices - and tried to remove the
BT mouse line - I was then given the opportunity to select is as a
trusted paired device and it then appeared in the Configuration ->
paired/trusted Devices list.

After that when re-booting it just works when I switch on the BT mouse.

However it did not get into this correct state easily and certainly
needed quite some fiddling, and did not respond to the obvious menu
items in the kbluetooth list normally.

So now that it is set up it works fine and smoothly. However this
kbluetooth is certainly buggy and could do with a look behind the scenes.

However I would guess that unless there is a bz report with log files it
will be difficult to trace where the problems lie. It might be better
to see if kbluetooth works in rawhide and try and get tracebacks/logs
and report in bz if things do not run smoothly. However my rawhide box
does not have bluetooth so I cannot test it there.

If anyone has rawhide on a machine that has bluetooth it would be well
worth testing both in kde and gnome ahead of release of f9 to avoid
grumbles after release.

I'm the kdebluetooth maintainer... but I'm doubt that I can help as
upstream is-more-less dead.

Either way, please file a bug report and I'll do my best to push it
upstream.
