[Pkg-utopia-maintainers] Bug#387851: still a problem July 2007

As the OP seems to have lost interest, let me report that the problem still
persists on my system (with an Atheros AR5424 chip) running up-to-date Sid
with madwifi-source package 1:0.9.3-3 compiled for the 2.6.21-2-686 kernel.
The problem does not only exist with my Linksys WAG200G AP at home, but also
with various HotSpots on the road.
I have now given up on network-manager (removed it) and am using
wpa_supplicant in roaming mode, which connects flawlessly and automatically
to my WPA-PSK secured LAN at home, a WEP-protected LAN at a friend's house,
or any unsecured HotSpot network on the road, whichever available.
Remarkably, roaming mode of wpa_supplicant seems to be a well-kept secret, as
it is never mentioned in any of the Debian (or Debian-related) forums...
