I have loaded module-bluez5-discover first, but I still get this error

module-bluez5-device.c: Failed to parse module arguments
2014-03-04T15:16:59.989390+01:00 PC-Malte pulseaudio[5632]: [pulseaudio]
module.c: Failed to load module "module-bluez5-device" (argument:
"address=00:23:78:AB:09:A6 profile=a2dp"): initialization failed.

This looks like parsing the arguments failed, but the given bluetooth
MAC adress is correct and the profile argument is also correct.

So I have no clue why this message still appears....

In default.pa I load module-bluez5-discover before module-bluez5-device,
just as needed.
