I have a v470, and it *has* needed to be paired up again before.
Did you 'remove' it from the bluetooth manager before you tried to pair it 
up again?

If the BT icon isn't in the top panel by the clock, run
$ bluetooth-properties
Select the travel mouse and click Remove. OK the warning that you'll have to 
set it up again.
Leave the preferences GUI open.

Press the button on the bottom of the mouse. The blue LED on top should 
start blinking about once per second.

Click the Setup new device button. Click Forward. You should now be able to 
select the travel mouse...
Click the PIN Options, and select 0000. Click Close.
Click Forward and your bluetooth adapter should pair up with the v470 again.

Let us know how that worked for you.
Merry Christmas, even though it ended about an hour ago UTC (zulu) time.  :)
