I have seen some of the errors mentioned in your previous mail (and crashes
under heavy traffic), but I am running hostap on a (not pcmcia-bridge) pci
prism card - so it might still be present in the driver you are using,
however that would be unlikely. All of this with linux-2.6.0-test9

Are you running the latest version from CVS, as this problem seems to have
been solved in there quite recently? Else, you've probably hit a new bug, it
seems.

There already is an object oriented version of COBOL. 
It's called "ADD ONE TO COBOL GIVING COBOL."
