Default Re-enabling Keystroke Injection when removing from BES (for Bluetooth keyboards)

Please Login to Remove!


Regarding: Keystroke Injection security permission
(Options Icon -> Security Options -> Application Permissions -> Edit Permissions -> Interactions -> Keystroke Injection)

When removing BlackBerries from BES, the Keystroke Injection permission isn't re-enabled. This means that any BlackBerry formerly on a BES, can no longer use Bluetooth keyboards (i.e. Stowaway Shasta, Freedom Universal Keyboard). I am suspecting that it is some kind of a bug in some versions of BES that doesn't properly re-enable this feature when legally removing a BlackBerry from a BES for unrestricted non-BES use.

What is the solution to remedy this problem? Re-add to BES, re-enable this feature, and then remove from BES again? If so, what is the minimum BES version that is required, in order for this procedure to work?

Alternatively, is there an undocumented workaround that may avoid needing to re-add the BlackBerry back on the BES, to fix the Keystroke Injection security permission?
