Could this point to a voltage or interference issue between bitbanger and
BT module?  If you can make the cable any shorter maybe that would help?
Maybe try a ferrite bead on the cable? I am just guessing, my understanding
of such things is limited to observed effects and not any knowledge of
electrical stuff.

The BT module I have says it will take anything from 4 to 12 volts.. If
yours is similar maybe it wants a little more power than its getting now?
