I got mine to work quite a bit better by switching from 2006-01-30 svn
to Sunday's.  That seems to work for at least WPA2-PSK to an Airport
Extreme.  The card takes a lot longer to scan and whatnot, which is why
I added the longer timeouts for a/b/g cards.  Furthermore, I have no
idea why the card keeps rejecting scan requests (which is due to the
check for !IS_UP() at the beginning of it's scanning ioctl handler).
