OK. I have re-installed ndisgtk, the 'purged' it, then 'purged'
ndiwrapper-common, then re-booted. But when I remove and re-insert the
USB wireless adapter, I get the following syslog messages
Oct 12 21:58:00 osiris kernel: [ 494.006015] usb 1-7: USB disconnect,

So it is still loading the ndiwrapper module!
