You have to add any users that need to access the bluetooth devices
via D-Bus (e.g. kdebluetooth) to the netdev group, like this:
# addgroup USER netdev
then restart your session so that this takes effect.

Hmm, I'm not sure the kdebluetooth maintainers can do much about this.
bluez-utils already provides a NEWS.Debian entry explaining the problem,
I'm not sure if d-i adds the default user to netdev. And maybe this
should be mentioned in the release-notes if it's not yet, so that people
doing an upgrade do not get bitten by this.
