no (verified with a different box running 10.0 which had the same problem when
i was still running that on my laptop)

it seems to be. I have NO problems at all writing to a samba share on the same
server, or moving large files with scp. Only when its written to a nfs share
(running nfs over udp, btw, but my old server [suse 8.0 with way too many
customizations to just update it to a 10.0] refuses to do nfs over tcp) is when
it breaks. and only over wlan.

lets see if the same bug hits SLED10 which is what i'm installing on my spare
laptop right now, which also needs madwifi... which, oh wonder, comes with
SLED10 by default.
