Description of problem:
When specifying a 128bit encryption key with iwconfig

iwconfig wlan0 key restricted <26 digit hex key>

a segmentation fault results, the system becomes unresponsive and 
hangs during the shutdown process.

A similar fault results from attempting to activate the connection 
with the network configuration GUI

/sbin/if : line 60 : 2709 Segmentation fault
iwconfig $DEVICE key $KEY

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.setup a wireless device
2.configure the device,
iwconfig <device> key restricted <key>

Which wireless card
Please also attach "dmesg" output after the segmentation fault.
Comment 2 Andrew Marshall 2004-05-22 11:12:13 EDT
The wireless card is an Intel Truemobile 1300, as installed on a Dell
Inspiron 8600.

lspci -v reports the following information

02:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM94306 802.11g (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Dell Computer Corporation TrueMobile 1300 WLAN
Mini-PCI Card
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 32, IRQ 7
        Memory at faff6000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2

The driver is ndiswrapper-0.7

Unfortunately I cannot attach dmesg information as the system becomes
unresponsive after seg faulting.
