I'm not sure if that's the one, but I consistently have to reboot my FR
in order to associate to a new network: after a while, "iwlist scan"
just keeps returning the same old data.  To some extent, it seems the
rest is still usable (e.g. if I go back to where that list was valid,
wpa-supplicant seems to be able to associate with my network again, at
least some of the time).  I've never seen any relevant message in the
log such as "ar6000_ioctl_giwscan", but I may have missed it.
