Thanks to those who helpfully suggested I run pand under strace. 
Unfortunately, for me at least, the results weren't particularly 

I'm assuming the following line from the panu side is significant:

ioctl(3, 0x400442c8, 0xbffff210)        = -1 EEXIST (File exists)

Anyone know what this means?

If it matters, ifconfig seems to show bnep0 as already existing, but not 
configured.  Should it go away when pand isn't running, and if so, how can 
I make it go away (i.e. would this be causing my problem?)

I'll send anyone interested in helping a copy of the entire strace output 
if they want it, but I don't want to bore three lists with it.

Any help appreciated.
