Default Bug#556585: X61 problem on Lenny with Backports kernel

I'm having the same problem with my laptop X61 Lenovo laptop running Lenny:

Long ago, I had to install a kernel from backports just to get the
device working at all. This bug has always existed in some form or
another on this laptop. However my use of wireless had been infrequent
until recently and the bug rarely popped up. Now I'm using wireless
daily and this bug is rather annoying.

I have the following for firmware:

apt-cache show firmware-iwlwifi | grep "Version|4965"
Version: 0.17~bpo50+1
Description: Binary firmware for Intel Wireless 3945, 4965 and

% dpkg -l|grep firmware-iwlwifi

ii linux-image-2.6.32-bpo.2-686-bigmem 2.6.32-8~bpo50+1
Linux 2.6.32 for PCs with 4GB+ RAM

This is my `uname -a` output:
Linux parcore 2.6.32-bpo.2-686-bigmem #1 SMP Tue Feb 16 08:53:00 UTC
2010 i686 GNU/Linux

The only way I can resume using my wireless card is with a full shutdown
and a fresh start. The wireless will work after a fresh boot. It will
have the above error within one day of solid wireless network use.
