Assuming you have two users logged in, switch user to the other (primary) login and type pulseaudio -k in a terminal. This will kill Pulseaudio in the "primary login", which will disconnect and release the device, and allow the "secondary login" to claim the new audio device when you reconnect it (by clicking the Connect button next to the device in the Bluetooth widget). This isn't ideal, but it works.
