Description of problem:
The system freezes sometimes when I connect to wireless network with WPA by
Network Manager using dkms-ndiswrapper driver(the wireless card is Trendnet
601pc, the chipset is atheros 5513), and system log shows some kernel bug output
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
When trying to reconnect to wireless network with WPA by Network Manager(with
dkms-ndiswrapper driver) for a few times
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to wireless access point
2. Reconnect to wireless access point with WPA
3. repeat 2 for a few times then system freezes
Mostly the system freezes, sometimes the mouse is still moving but when clicking
on anything on the task bar the bar just disappears. Press Ctrl+Alt+F6 to try to
login as root, only seeing the screen print out some bug information which is
also seen later in system log

Can you create this without loading ndiswrapper?
Not so far.
Sorry, I can't support an ndiswrapper problem.
