  [Touch] no permission to access bluez on dbus

Status in “bluez” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm trying today's touch preview image, trying to get bluetooth
  headsets working. After installing the package (see bug 1177421 ),
  PulseAudio gets the following error message:

  bluetooth-util.c: org.bluez.Manager.GetProperties() failed:
  org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: Rejected send message, 2
  matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.3" (uid=32011 pid=260
  comm="pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog ")
  interface="org.bluez.Manager" member="GetProperties" error
  name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="org.bluez" (uid=0
  pid=99 comm="/usr/sbin/bluetoothd ")

  ...it looks like there is some permission error as pulseaudio is not
  allowed to talk to the bluez daemon over D-Bus. As a result,
  pulseaudio does not detect the headset.
