Unfortunately I didn't pay enough attention at the time to what was
going wrong, I wound up fixing it (by removing/reinserting the driver
stack) before I took any detailed debugging info.

If it does it again on Monday (next time I'll be on that network) I'll
take some dumps and see what I can find.

This network is a little weird anyway, so I'm not *sure* it's the
card's fault entirely...  It's a "local mobility" mobile IP network.
I'm not 100% clear on how it works, but I know it plays some kludgey
voodoo to get mobile IP working *without* the host computer being
aware it is roaming.

If I've told you once, I've told you once
And once is all that you needed.
