On an only barely related note, has anyone tried bridging between
a wi device and some other ethernet device?

I tried, and the briding only partially worked.. it would send packets
from the wireless device to the ethernet device, but packets coming in the
ethernet device that should have gone out the wireless device weren't.

I've tried with multiple ethernet devices as well.  Also confirmed that
ethernet->ethernet bridging worked fine with said cards.

This is with:
wi0 at pcmcia0 function 0: D, Link DWL-650 11Mbps WLAN Card, Version 01.02
wi0: 802.11 address 00:05:5d:d6:2c:9a
