changed since then. Because of that we won't fix this issue however if
this behavior repeats on a modern version please fill a bug report
against it and we will take it from there.

  Bluetooth daemon crashes when using mobile phone as network device

Status in bluez package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Bluetooth daemon crashes often when using mobile phone as network
  device (PAN/NAP). In a few times it works and then I can use the phone
  Internet connection in my laptop.

  Steps to reproduce the bug:
  1) Get a mobile phone with the tethering capability via bluetooth and a laptop with bluetooth adapter.
  2) Pair the mobile phone and the laptop using gnome-control-center -> bluetooth module.
  3) In  gnome-control-center -> bluetooth module, activate the option "Use your mobile phone as a network device".
  4) Go to network-manager applet and click on the phone connection to connect, most times it will fail.
  5) Repeat the step before a few times until you see the crash or the Apport notification.

  What is happening now?
  Most of the time, the connection fails and bluetooth daemon crashes after some tries.

  What is expected to happen?
  The connection should be successfully established via network-manager applet and after that, I should have the phone internet connection available for my computer.
