nice to hear that you like it. I am also wondering what to do with kernel 
bugs. I dont have kernel skills to fix them and not many other people have 
them too it seems. Only thing i could do is to use old 2.6.29 openmoko kernel 
which was really stable IIRC.

There are issues with wpa_supplicant on GTA02 in debian wheezy. You can check 


and search wpa_supplicant for details. Maybe it's your case.
