Brian, as one who has also been burnt on bad BT hardware, I will concur that 
it is 200% buyer beware on that stuff.  I got burnt on a pair that weren't 
even given a MAC address in their firmware, so they defaulted to and refused to talk to each other from 3 feet.  So it cost 
me $40 USD twice to get two dongles that worked.  Possibly bluez may be able 
to deal with such a device today, but back about December of last year it 
was helpless, incapable of assigning a BDADDR to a device without one.

Cheers, Gene
