sorry about that... updated NM now ;-) as you said, now i see the signal
strength as x/y*100 (though i like  ln(x)/ln(y)*100 better - and for
some reason i thought this was "standard practice" ... but that's
nothing to argue about, it's all relative anyway) the displayed signal
quality it still doesn't change as i change my location. i will hold my
peace about signal strengths until the driver gets fixed, i guess. 

now it's "only" a solution to the constant scanning problem that i'm
waiting for ;-) back to ifplugd for now.
