Yes. I tested again on another laptop with build in WiFi with which WPA +
WPA2 worked fine. I could get the stick there to work with WPA. Then in
the old laptop again and now it works there with WPA. I tried to hot-plug
there (remove PCMCIA WiFi-card, plugin Linksys stick), but that did not
work, I had to reboot the laptop. But that is good enough for me. I will
follow this bug out of interest, but as far as I'm concerned it is
resolved now.
