hi, i'm running 2.6.31-12.41 on an eeepc 1005ha.  with network-manager I
get a lot of the bogus roaming from bug #291760.  If I switch to wicd,
which doesn't roam automatically, I get the disassociation/association

Oct  8 13:40:03 bluesy kernel: [  543.544154] wlan0: no probe response from AP 00:1a:1e:1e:d2:40 - disassociating
Oct  8 13:40:03 bluesy kernel: [  543.565826] ath9k: DMA failed to stop in 10 ms AR_CR=0x00000024 AR_DIAG_SW=0x00000020

What I've just seen is:

 1) Load the module and connect
 2) Under heavy traffic (branching a large bzr tree over ssh) I get 2-3 disassociations over a minute or two
 3) After this the disassociations stop, but the network performance is lousy (about 10% packet loss)

This is on an academic network with hundreds or thousands of different
APs, but I've been in the same room for the last few hours.
