[driverloader] Cisco 350 MiniPCI, WPA -- any success stories?

I'm trying to get the Cisco 350 MiniPCI adapter in my ThinkPad T30 to
work with WPA-PSK security. I'm running Debian sarge with the
prebuilt 2.6.8-1-686 kernel.
Does anybody have success or failure stories to report? I haven't seen any
reports out there describing success or failure either way.
I'll describe the problems I'm having. Installation seemed to go
fine. After a cold boot, encouraging messages appear in the log (note
WPA is listed as supported):
Sep 28 15:13:29 localhost kernel: wlan0: New link status: Disconnected (0002)
Sep 28 15:13:29 localhost kernel: wlan0: WPA, TKIP, WEP128, WEP64 supported
Sep 28 15:13:29 localhost kernel: wlan0: Cisco Systems352 series Wireless LAN Adapter. at 0000:02:02.0 (MAC address 00:02:8A:5C:84:58) ready
Then I issue "ifconfig wlan0 up", followed by "wpa_supplicant -dd -c
/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i wlan0" and this shows up in the kernel
Sep 28 15:20:33 localhost kernel: driverloader: ndisQueryInformation: 802_11_BSSID_LIST st=NOT_SUPPORTED W=0 N=0
wpa_supplicant acts like it's timing out.
After killing wpa_supplicant, "iwlist wlan0 scanning" returns "wlan0:
Interface doesn't support scanning : Operation not supported".
However, if the very first thing I do after booting is "iwlist wlan0
scanning", it seems to work exactly once (returning the correct list
of SSIDs in this area) -- then the next time I run iwlist, it's
"Failed to read scan data" and the same NOT_SUPPORTED message shows up
in the kernel log.
Any idea what's going on here?
