FC5, Madwifi, NM -- network recovery after suspend-to-ram?


I've been fairly happy with my FC5 update.  NM 0.6 is much more usable
than 0.3 in FC3.  Except for my 802.11(b/g) vs. 802.11(a) issue, it's
been pretty durn stable.  Thanks.

My only issue right now is that the wireless network doesn't seem to
"come back" automatically after a suspend-to-ram.  Maybe I'm not doing
something correct, but it just doesn't seem to work right.  It doesn't
seem to re-scan for wireless networks after the resume..  What I've
had to do:

 * manually disable networking
 * manually bring down ath0
 * manually rmmod all madwifi modules
 * manually 'ifconfig ath0 up'
 * manually re-eneable networking
 * pray it takes and that I don't have to repeat the process

I'll note that the suspend/resume sequence DOES dbus-send the sleep
and wake functions to NM, but am I missing something else?  Do I need
to tell HALD about the suspend/resume?  Is there a race condition?  Am
I missing something I need to do?

Any help would be appreciated...
