[opensuse] Hard lock on openSUSE 12.2 when using rt3290sta WiFi

This is a new problem I've been trying to solve today... maybe someone
here can shed some light on the problem?

I've got a Zotac Giga ID70 (Intel i3 2100T, 4GB RAM, Nvidia GT430,
RTL8111/8168B NIC, and RT3290 WiFi). Everything works out of the box
except WiFi. I downloaded the WiFi driver (either from Zotac direct
or from RT, they are the same), and did a make, make install, modprobe
rt3290sta. WiFi came alive immediately, I was able to connect to my
router, and everything seemed to be working properly.

I tried downloading a file, and got a hard lock. Could not ssh in,
keyboard and mouse were unresponsive. The only way to recover was a
hard reset.

I rebooted and tried again, this time by streaming a random YouTube
video. Again a complete lock-up with only a hard reset. The lock-up
only happens if I start downloading any stream of data. Normal use
(eg web searches that don't result in a large stream of data are fine,
but as soon as the data stream is large enough or continuous...
lock-up).

In /var/log/messages, as long as I have the rt3290sta module loaded
into kernel, even while I'm using the wired network, the log is
filling up with an endless stream of:

With a new line every few seconds, but not much else going on to
indicate anything useful for figuring out what's wrong.

At the lockup point, there is nothing in the log that indicates a
problem that was recorded immediately before the lock-up. These are
the message lines immediately before the hard lock:

Relevant output of lspci:

I've searched around and not found much other than a discussion on the
Ubuntu side of things from about 2 years ago that appears (to me
anyway) to be similar, but not the same.

Has anyone had any success with this WiFi card? Got it working?
