Ok, one more update.  I found something on the ndiswrapper mailing list archives:

Apparently, the way the hardware is, it requires a power off to reset
the firmware.  If you leave it in an reboot, it will not properly come
back up.  So, the workaround is to do a shut down if you want to leave
the dongle in the computer.  If not, you have to remove the dongle and
put it back in when you reboot.  I don't think it works properly if you
leave it in while it is booting up, you need to:

sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

to reset it.
