I cannot confirm that it actually fixes anything with the current lenny
kernels, because I've not been experiencing this bug recently. It seems
to have something to do with the wireless network environment (number of
wireless clients, a misbehaving client, or something along those lines)
and the particular issues haven't come up recently.
I can, however, confirm that the new firmware doesn't actually seem to
*break* anything in lenny.
