Kubuntu 11.04 : wireless repeatedly disconnecting after a few seconds

I've just replaced Slackware 13.37 (with KDE 4.5.5 and a hand-compiled 
NetworkManager) by Kubuntu 11.04 on my Toshiba Tecra laptop, to see if I 
could make life easier for me and use a general public distro.

Everything looks quite fine, except... wireless. Keeps disconnecting all 
the time. I took a peek in /var/log/syslog, but all I get is a flood of 
more or less laconic messages like this:

wpa_supplicant:	CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED bssid=bl:ah:bl:ah:bl:ah reason=0

Now I don't even have the slightest idea where to start looking. And 
this is a serious showstopper. Any suggestions?
