this behavior repeats on a modern version please fill a bug report

  hid2hci disables keyboard after upgrade to 10.04

Status in bluez package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: udev

  Automatically running hid2hci (in /lib/udev/rules.d/70-hid2hci.rules)
  when a usb bt mini-receiver is found is undesirable behavior.  Whether
  to run the bt mini-receiver in HID mode or HCI mode should be
  configurable by the user and should survive upgrade.

  Before upgrading from 9.10, I had disabled HCI mode (by editing
  70-hid2hci.rules) because I have a multi-boot computer (the bluetooth
  system design fails to account for multi-boot).

  After upgrading to 10.04, I no longer had keyboard access because
  pairing requires a keyboard!

  A couple of suggestions for addressing this:
  1.  Installer preserves existing 70-hid2hci.rules
  2.  Installer asks user which mode if 70-hid2hci.rules is edited
  3.  Add another means of preventing hid2hci from running (ala env var or whatever)
