In Jaunty Alpha 5 I have begun experiencing this issue.
Kernel Version: 2.6.28-8-generic
Driver Version: git-1.2.2
Firmware Version: 1.3
Relevant lines from dmesg:

There doesn't seem to be a particular set of circumstances that cause
the issue (unlike the attached bugzilla report which seems to be
triggered by traffic). This issue has been happening while the only
network application active is pidgin. Sometimes it happens once every 2
or 3 minutes, other times it seems t go for several hours without
I have been running the alpha for quite some time and this seems to be a
recent issue. I will try downgrading to and earlier jaunty kernel
release to see if this still happens
