For me, on an Lenovo X60 (x86) with the iwl3945 driver, on the current
rawhide kernel (2.6.21-1.3149.fc7) and 28-3 release of the wireless tool
this works until NetworkManager does a rescan.

This is pretty much in line with what I've been seeing for quite a while
over various kernels now (I've never had it work any more than this
much, and often worse).

Same hardware, same results...  I get about 15 seconds worth of
traffic through before it 'stops working'.

Get lots of these (don't remember getting these before):

wlan0: CTS protection disabled (BSSID=00:14:6a:5b:3a:80)
printk: 18 messages suppressed.
wlan0: CTS protection enabled (BSSID=00:14:6a:5b:3a:80)
printk: 17 messages suppressed.
wlan0: CTS protection enabled (BSSID=00:14:6a:5b:3a:80)
printk: 20 messages suppressed.
wlan0: CTS protection disabled (BSSID=00:14:6a:5b:3a:80)
