When i use ifconfig wi0 mediaopt monitor, the card is in monitor mode,
but subsequent use of 'ifconfig wi0 -mediaopt monitor' doesn't restore
the card into Managed/BSS mode (in which it was before).
   i have to explicitly 'ifconfig wi0 down up' to get it to work.

I am using a linksys wpc11 ver 3 card. (prism 2.5 chipset i believe.)
primary firmware 1.1.1, secondary 1.8.0
