apple.com, on its "Bluetooth Firmware Updater 1.1":

"Important: Applying this firmware updater to a D-Link USB to Bluetooth
adapter will make it incompatible with non-Macintosh systems."

Anybody out there who knows more on that in the meantime, i.e. is there
already a fix for it, or workaround, or whatever? 
Or is there even someone out there with a working bluetooth on Linux ppc
after upgrading the machine to the new Buetooth Firmware?

Thanks in anticipation.
