Hi everybody,

I have upgraded to pulseaudio 2.0 through Arch repository and my bluetooth
headset is giving me trouble. The headset was working flawlessly before
upgrading, I paired it using Gnome Shell's panel and then I could select it as
the active sink device in the audio setting.

After upgrading, the audio device is not there anymore, even though the headset
is paired (I can play/pause music using the play button on it, but music comes
from the laptop as I can't select the headset anymore).

Looking in systemd's journal at first I found hints similar to:

This parameter has never been necessary on my system, though adding
Enabled=Socket now changes things in the log, that reports "Failed to load
module-bluetooth-device" several times.

I've tried deleting .pulse and .pulse-cookie and rebooting, without luck.

What is even more strange, is that my headset worked sporadically after
removing the paired device from the bluetooth menu, killing the server and
repairing the device. This workaround doesn't always do the magic, magic which
definitely stops if I reboot.

Reverting to the old pulseaudio gives me my headset back, I can connect it and
I'll get the audio device without further trouble.

I am not sure which logs I should provide, but I'll be glad to come back with
as many information as you teach me to do :)
