I received a message earlier today from Sverre Froyen, who suggested
the same thing. I diff'ed the 5.1 and 'current' versions of if_iwn.c
and clearly major changes have occurred. I will take your (and
Sverre's) advice and install 'current'. I  will let you know how that
version of the driver performs on my machine.
