Comment(by werner):

 Grrr, did I mention that I hate web-based interfaces, particularly if
 they don't know what a "back" button it for ?

 The last line of my comment is obsolete. It should have been:

 ... It's a locking inconsistency in the AR6k driver. I've attached a
 patch that avoids the problem but that may introduce a race condition.

 It seems that there may be a more severe issue with how the driver
 locks against access from interrupts. This needs a bit more investigating.
