"You need bluetooth channel ready to add new devices" error

When trying to connect from the Android CSRMesh demo app to the CSR1010 I get the error message, "You need bluetooth channel ready to add new devices".  On the earlier CSR forum there was a post addressing this issue.  The fix worked for the original poster, but it didn't work in my case.

I have noticed in the Run log that when the 1010 is powered up I quickly see log entries with "onScanResult" and information from the 1010 including the device name that I have set.  However, if I click the add button on the devices screen then I get the above error message.

If I pay attention to the Run log sometimes I will eventually see a line stating, "D/MeshBluetooth: MeshConstants.MESSAGE_LE_CONNECTED 00:02:5B:00:15:83".  If that happens I can then hit the add device button and go forward.  However, without that it never works.

Are there any other parameters that I can change in order to get rid of this continual failed connection problem?  Unfortunately everything that is being logged appears to be in the Bluetooth library code, so I can't even walk through it to find the problem.

Thanks in advance,
