  [Vostro 3550] Bluetooth applet showing even though system has no

Status in “bluez” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  View the attached screenshot and note the following:
  1: Bluetooth icon is in the panel
  2: terminal shows hcitool dev returns no device, and ps output shows bluetooth applet and bluetoothd running
  3: bluetooth config tool shows it's disabled

  This  system, as far as I can tell, has no bluetooth controller, yet
  the icon and bluetoothd are still running and visible.  This also
  caused the bluetooth/detect to fail in Checkbox.  That test does the

  command: hcitool dev | tail -n+2 | awk '{print $2}' |grep -E "^([0-9a-fA-F]{2}\:){5}[0-9a-fA-F]{2}$"
  description: Output address of detected Bluetooth device, if any, or exits with error if none is found.

  So the checkbox failure is expected behaviour... what's puzzling is
  why is the bluetoothd and bluetooth applet running? On other systems
  with no bluetooth, this was not an issue.  This is the first system
  I've tested that did NOT have bluetooth but exhibited this behaviour.
