Did you try this?

So I'm confused.  That's a fix in Network Manager source, but I
thought the problem was suppose to be in the Atheros driver not in
Network Manager.  Or does that longer timeout just suppress the
detection of the Atheros driver disconnecting so that Network Manager
doesn't show the disconnect?

What's the status of .7?  If that is indeed a fix then will that make
it in .7?  I'm also waiting for .7 to have a system wide store for my
WPA keys.
