Problem browsing files on BlueTooth device

Asked by adam jvok on 2011-10-23

Paired my phone with my ubuntu (11.10) PC ok.
Under the BT icon menu, I now see an entry for my phone.
Click on that, select 'browse files' from the sub menu.
Connection request received by phone, which I accept.
No file browser displayed.

Try another way.
Under the BT icon menu, "Browse files on device".
Window appears "Select device to browse". There is something wrong with this window - the list of devices only displays the top 10% of the first entry - can barely see it.
Click on it anyway, then hit the Browse button.
BT crashes. Icon vanishes.

/var/log/syslog shows:
obex-data-server: sdp_extract_seqtype: Unexpected end of packet

This worked just fine with previous version of Ubuntu.

Sending a file from Ubuntu to the phone does work OK.

Any idea what is wrong? Thanks for help.

... and, trying "obexftp -b -l" from a terminal works fine - it locates my phone and lists the files.

No, not that I'm aware of.

I see question #175461 "Bluetooth 'Browse device' no longer works" so I'm not alone.

Can you help with this problem?
