I am running the patched driver for two weeks and it appears to be very 
stable. The connection persists even with very bad signal quality. If the 
signal is interrupted only once in my university, I have to wait for half an 
hour before I'm allowed to reconnect into the VPN. This has not happened 
during the last couple of hours, even though the connection quality is 5:0 at 
the moment. Which is /very/, /very/ bad.
