Works OK with 5.4-RELEASE LiveCD with the same hardware -- I can
insert/eject wi(4) card several times without any illness, and it
can associate with an AP every time.  So it looks like something
"mid july" did it (5.4-RELEASE was in May).  FWIW, my notebook
is pretty much standard: IBM ThinkPad 600X.
