Thanks Dave.  I saw the kernel fix and have opted to wait for it to come 
through to Ubuntu.  I have some restricted modules like atheros and 
don't want to go through the bother of compiling them as well.  But I'm 
encouraged to hear that the new kernel has fixed the problem and I now 
eagerly await its appearance in synaptic.  Luckily I don't rely heavily 
on syncing.
