first of all, i doubt that BCM92035 is using 2033 chip. i think it is
uses different (2035?) chip.

it also appears that this particular dongle may need to use special
non-standard initialization sequence.

can you please check vendor id/product id pair for your dongle (use usbdevs(8)).

1) if it is (0x0a5c, 0x200a) then you could try to comment out "reset"
command in /etc/rc.d/bluetooth

2) if it is (x0a5c, 0x2009) then you out of luck - this device needs
special non-standard initialization sequence. ng_ubt(4) currently does
not support that. if i can get this dongle into my hands i can fix
