Hmm, there sould be no difference between 069 an 070 regarding this.
Does "rmmod ipw2200" followed by a "modprobe ipw2200" always fail, or is it only
an issue on bootup?

With the failing setup, care to add:
to the udev rules and run "udevmonitor" to get the exact event sequence including
timing of kernel+udev events.

This seems to work fine for me with newest rpms. Please re-open with more
information if this issue is not resolved with an update to current rpms.
