There will be a native PulseAudio (PA) Bluetooth (BT) support in PA 0.9.13 .
Instead of "module-alsa-sink device=bluetooth" the module
"module-bluetooth-device sink_name=btheadset address=00:1B:41:00:06:11
profile=a2dp" can be used . I have tested this and my notes can be found here
[1].

To use the BT in openSUSE 11.1 I think it is better to avoid PA and send the
output to Alsa directly as I describe in [2], while still having the default
sound input/output to/from PA.

I know that this does not solve the problem, but I think that the current
situation is too complex. Application sends data to Alsa, .asoundrc redirects
this to PA and PA module-alsa-sink sends the data to Alsa.

We can send the sound data to Alsa directly, or we will use the
module-bluetooth-device in PA. There will be another module
module-bluetooth-discover in PA 0.9.13 which should automatically configure the
BT headset to PA. This fulfills the requirement in Feature request #100301:
Easy Setup of Bluetooth Headsets.

I do not know where does the Banshee send the output. Is it Alsa or PA? I can
not find any Banshee output configuration. I am not sure whether the sound is
even directed to the Alsa in the reported setting. The reporter uses ~/.alsarc
instead of ~/.asoundrc described in [3].
