I was more or less suspecting something like this (must be a sequel of 
my past as hardware engineer! :)). With the calibration cycle increased 
to 5 mn (i.e. 300 s), I was able to ping my AP all night through without 
interruption. I'm still using it right now, nothing goes wrong. I might 
even say it works fine.
