	Thanks for your help. I don't seem to see any problem there. Here are
the only four lines produced in messages. I also tried grep with 2915
without any further result.

Jul  7 08:16:07 localhost kernel: ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless
2200/2915 Network Driver, git-1.1.1
Jul  7 08:16:07 localhost kernel: ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel
Jul  7 08:16:08 localhost kernel: ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless
2915ABG Network Connection
Jul  7 08:16:08 localhost kernel: ipw2200: Detected geography ZZA (11
802.11bg channels, 13 802.11a channels)

	What I find strange is that it drops off almost as a function of time,
rather than at a particular stage.  Nothing is added to messages at that
	Any further suggestions?
