   That also appears to work for me. I did some many file transfers and it 
   seemed to work fine, but I have only been using it for 13 minutes. I 
   used Sverre's patch for several hours successfully.

thanks for reporting.

my wireless is usually pretty flaky at home anyway, but it seems to
be working much better with this patch... i was expecting to have
switched back to the wire by now, but it's been hours without a
single dropout and a bunch of transfers.

sverre: thanks for the initial patch!
