you may have to install synaptic manually if this was a clean install of 11.10 (sudo apt-get install synaptic or use the software center either way works)
Update: do NOT blindly allow updates from "apt-get update/upgrade" if you use this method.. as using for ex sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade will walk all over your "locked' versions from synaptic.. update-manager/synaptic/aptitude (terminal mode gui) all seem to support the synaptic package version force though...
Have you tried setting a priority on the repository? I'm not at home but something like this may work:
user@boobtube:/etc/apt/preferences.d$ cat bluez-pin-700
Pin: release o=LP-PPA-kitlaan
After you setup the preference try running 'apt-cache policy bluez' to see which candidate is selected for installation.
Also on a different topic, a note for people following the instructions on Ubuntu 11.10, uinput is now compiled into the kernel, so the modprobe won't show anything.
