Hi Scott

I have confirmed that the source of the bug is the Intel ProShare
Wireless 2100 mini pci card (driver?) in the Dell D400. I have worked
around by switching it off in the bios, and using an external PCMCIA
WiFi card (Cisco). So a fix is not urgent for me, but others may
encounter sim probs

thanks

Simon
