That reminds me on a problem I have seen a few weeks ago.
Something (maybe NM) triggered a scan every few (1-3) minutes.
The iwl3945 driver had (or still has) a bug where no traffic has been
transfered while it was scanning.
That caused a roaming event.
IIRC NM even logged that in /var/log/NetworkManager.
The scan also showed up in iwevent.
IIRC iwl has been fixed to not interrupt traffic while scanning.
