  1. Bug#497870: Still crashing

    Hi!

    I just had another crash. Same symptoms: heavy wireless network activity
    causes the system to crash with blinking wireless and caps lock icons. Couldn't
    contact the computer in anyway and had to do turn it off with the power button.

    Is any progress being made on this bug?

    I have no logs no nothing to prove it, but it seems to me that the most
    consistent thing about these crashes are the transfers of many small
    files. I have transfered large files without issues, but transferring many
    small files often make me crash in this manner.

    Does the problem still occur if you run current 2.6.28-rcX kernels?
    There've been lots of changes on the ath5k driver.

    Cheers,
