Wii Mote and cwiid

Not really Suse specific, but not sure where else to post this. I’m running cwiid. It works fine, with one caveat. Everytime I start it up I have to reassociate my wiimote by pressing buttons 1+2 to put it into discovery mode. I have provided the bdaddr in my command with my wiimote’s bluetooth address, but still have to put wiimote into discovery.

Does it work this way for everyone? Not sure what point of being able to provide the wiimote bdaddr is if you have to put them into discovery mode everytime.

yea I have had to do that under all openSUSE 11.X (I havent tried any other distros, but next time I go into work I’ll see if I can borrow an ubuntu machine to test it out.)
