Description William Hayman 2008-04-15 10:35:05 UTC
Description of problem:
Since upgrading to the system hangs when the PCI wireless card
is activated.  The machine is a Thinkpad G40.  This configuration worked fine
with earlier Fedora releases and when I boot XP.

Nothing is written to /var/log/messages.  It does not crash and there is no
stack trace.

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

How reproducible:
Completely. I will try to get a stack trace if somebody can give me a heads up
as to what components/modules are suspect.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  With Network Manager running, insert card
2.  Boot system with card inserted
3.  Activate card with Network Configuration
Actual results:
System hangs and power switch is required to restart

Expected results:
