[driverloader] Misc. problems with the driverloader module

I am using the most recent drivers and I am experiencing the same problems
(netndis_xmitcomplete_handler: err -5 + ndisWrapCheckForHangTimerFunc_stk +
other things in syslog + need to reload) but only when I am using a daemon to
autoconfigure the wlan interface. When I use iwconfig manually or through a
script, I do not have these problems. Are you using any special program to
configure the wireless interface?
version: driverloader-1.54 with module built from tarball
Win drivers: w70n51.inf/.sys version 184.108.40.206
Adapter model : Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter
