In my experience it's not the driver that is flaky, but the firmware in the 
hardware. I've seen several times that if certain commands are intermixed, 
the firmware will completely stop responding.

Has the rum driver ever worked with USB2 and -current? Recently there has been 
several changes in the WLAN layer and some minor changes in if_rum.
