I've recreated this using 2.6.27-4-generic on Intrepid Ibex and iwl3945
driver version 1.2.26ks.  The workaround mentioned does work for me
though.

** Description changed:

  Normally, the wifi kill switch of my Dell D620 is enabled because I
  don't need wifi often. If the system was booted with an enabled kill
  switch, then I can't reactive the wireless interface any more. Only a
  reboot with deactivated kill switch enables the interface again.
  
         description: Wireless interface
         product: PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
         vendor: Intel Corporation
         driver = iwl3945
  
  This problem didn't occur on gutsy (which the closed source driver).
  
  iwl4965 suffers from the same defect.

+ WORKAROUND:
+ sudo rmmod iwl3945
+ sudo modprobe iwl3945
