Unable to pair Bluetooth mouse Logitech MX Anywhere 2

I just bought a new mouse, a Logitech MX Anywhere 2 because on my Laptop I need to dual-boot between Arch and Windows and this mouse supports up to trhree profiles/devices.

The MX Anywhere 2 mouse is a bluetooth 4 LE device, the Laptop a Dell E7440 (00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I218-LM (rev 04))

Running WIndows there is no problem at all.

Runing Arch (KDE5) the mouse shows as "Type unknown" but "Paired" but the mouse does not work at all.

Version information: bluez-5.39-1

Investigating the things on the console I get the following:

# hciconfig hci0

The kernel shows up this message

Apr 21 12:03:40 E7440 kernel: Bluetooth: HCI request failed to create LE connection: status 0x0c

Seems that this mouse is using any unknown authentication process. It doesn't even ast for a PIN.

Any idea/advice how to go on?

This has been sorted now in kernel 4.6.1
