Last night, I had been having this exact same problem.  When I checked the logs,
I was getting this message once every 130 seconds.  And while it was occurring,
any network traffic that was in progress would stall, but then recover after
about two seconds.  Later, the adapter disconnected from the access point and
refused to reconnect until I unloaded and then reloaded the iwl3945 module. 
Since that point, however, I have not had any of the error messages show up.

Note: I was having this problem with 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 as well.

Haven't attempted to check timestamps, but definitely seeing this frequently:
Linux top #1 SMP Mon Jul 23 16:59:15 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64
x86_64 GNU/Linux
