 Oh what a difference a bit can make... (:-))

 Yes, with that patch things are much smoother.  I can connect to my
 network, then connect to my neigbour's, then back to mine, which I could
 never do before.  I did once get the symptom of apparently being connected
 but a ping to my gateway not working, but I couldn't repeat it.

 I noticed also that an ifconfig immediately after boot showed "up
 broadcast", rather than "up broadcast configuring" for a while, which
 seems better.  I didn't have to wait to connect.

 Both an ifconfig command and the NetworkStatus applet seemed to be equally
 good.  No lockups yet.
