OS X 10.4.5 - Bluetooth prefs not global

As the title says, Bluetooth prefs are per-account. You can turn off discoverability and set Bluetooth off in a primary admin account, and then when you switch to another user account, it's back on and discoverable again, since that is the default.

(I have both an admin account I use at home behind my firewall, and a separate non-admin wireless roaming account I use when on another wireless network e.g. at the airport.)

So if you want to be sure your Bluetooth is off, you have to set it in each account.
