How do I remove the old phone device pairing entry at the Select Bluetooth Device page
when the Select Phone button is clicked? I went to System Preference -> Bluetooth and
managed to remove the entry there, but in Clicker it is still present.

This list is managed by the OS. Try clicking "Remove from Favorites".

Thanks.

Removing from favorites doesn't remove the pairing. He wants to go to the bluetooth
system preference pane and select "remove pairing" from there.

I have already visited the Bluetooth Preference Pane and removed the
pairing there (and verified it is gone from this Pane), but it is
still there at the Select Bluetooth Device dialog box. Rebooting the
system doesn't help. I know leaving it there will cause no problem,
but I want to zap it. Do you know which file I could tinker with?

Oh, I know what you mean now. One time a friend of mine paired his PDA with my
computer and it's still in the device list, and I still haven't figured out how to remove it
(even after doing an exhaustive search on the device name in ~/Library and /Library. And
since then I've been through a few phones...

I'd might as well try to figure it out now, since the "old devices I'm never going to see
again" list is getting kinda large on my system. :)

The device cache (and many other things) are in
/var/root/Library/Preferences/blued.plist

If you wipe this file and kill the blued process, it should all be done
(along with "other things").

Best,

Or just remove the appropriate key/dict stanzas and you don't have to repair the good
devices. :)

Thanks, no wonder I was having trouble finding it - I didn't consider looking in /var/root,
since I didn't realize any system preferences were kept in there. That seems like the sort
of thing which should be in ~/Library or *maybe* /Library.

Now I have to worry about whether there's any buffer overflow exploits in whatever SUID
wrapper is used to let any ordinary user pair a Bluetooth device which might give any
random wanker with a Symbian phone or a PalmPilot root access to my laptop. :D
