The ``b43'' driver in recent 2.6 kernels has this problem.  There's
a fix in the netdev tree (one of the numerous Linux devel trees), but
it hasn't been merged into mainline yet.

I have no idea about the proprietary ``wl'' driver used in the 2.4
kernels used in 7.09.

So the best bet, as far as I'm concerned, is to wait until the netdev
patches percolate down to Kamikaze, and then switch to the 2.6 kernel.
