I have found that both HostAP and the orinoco drivers seem to both have
this problem with the firmware I was using (0.3.0 primary, 1.4.9
secondary). The linux-wlan drivers do not do have this problem at all
but I am unclear as to when they made the change that caused this
problem to go away...

If your secondary firmware is old you could try a temporary ram upload
of newer firmware (I'm not sure where there are instructions to do this
