That probably was me. My phone, a 6230, had symptoms that were identical to 
what you describe above. Sounds like we were probably doing about the same 
thing when the phone crashed (I was using xgnokii as well). Only difference 
is that I was using a DKU2 cable and driver, not bluetooth. I suppose that 
eliminates something from the mix.

I had to get my phone re-flashed. I'm afraid I haven't used gnokii since.
