Bug description:
  I have an android phone (2.3.6) and a DELL E6500 running kubuntu

  The phone has been paired to the computer in order to use bluetooth
  for internet access (as I prefer this to the wifi hotspot to do

  Unfortunately, at this point, whenever the phone is close to the
  computer, the two autoconnect for audio transfer and it gets hard to
  use the phone, as the audio is routed to the computer (that
  incidentally does not seem able to propagate it to its speakers and

  Is there some way to prevent PC with bluez to announce itself as a
  headset or audio device and autoconnect for this?
