Basically it's flooding dmesg and causing my whole system to hang. It hangs at such weird intervals that it could happen in the middle of a keydown/keyup...causing my computer to think the key is still down until the zd1211 driver gives control back, it seems. I don't really know how the kernel works, so that's my best guess. I would really like to be able to type long sentences again without it hanging. Happeningly, it hasn't happened once while typing this, but happens a lot while I'm using quanta/anything KDE-based. It does happen in non-kde though, before anybody jumps on the "it's kde's fault" bandwagen.

I've googled and googled for what the hell it means, and the best I can come up with is that BCN means beacon :P
I'm running the dongle in Master mode to provide my apartment with sweet, sweet wireless, but if this can't be resolved I'll have to get a stupid router or something.
Can anybody help me to make this go away?
Thanks in advance
