NetworkManager and Atheros Madwifi Drivers (Weak Signal Strength)

Thanks for letting us know. And thanks to Darren for doing this.
I installed the patched versions and find that NM now reports more
signal strength, but not the same as network monitor reports. Anyone
know whether this is "normal" behavior?
By the way, with the patched version, I have not yet seen NM
spontaneously drop the connection. If that change appears to be real,
(and not just me not noticing with only a couple of hours useage) then I
am a happy camper regardless of the numbers reported.
Also, while I understand Dan's reasons for not wanting the patch to be
in the official NM code, I can't for the life of me figure out why the
ubuntu maintainers would not glom onto it immediately. **
** Course, if I'm so smart, why could I not get Robert Love's patch to
work!?! I'll leave that as an exercise for the reader ;-)
Thanks again to all who helped out with this!
