Flaky connection with latest CVS version

Hi,

I changed from an older CVS-version (~3 weeks old) to a recent one to test 
the new 32bit tallies.
The good news is that I no longer get INFDROP events during larger file transfers,
the bad news is that the connection seems flaky.

AP-Machine:
Netgear MA311 PCI
kernel 2.4.21 + CVS-hostap
master mode

syslog-message:

Client-Machine (notebook):
Netgear MA401 pccard
kernel 2.4.22-pre10 (for ACPI) + CVS-hostap
managed mode

syslog-message:

Aug  3 18:51:09 roadrunner kernel: wlan0: LinkStatus: BSSID=00:09:5b:2f:13:1f

AFAIK I haven't seen this problem before the 32bit tallies change.
Jouni, do you think that this change is responsible for the errors?

Cheers,
michael
