I'm following-up on my previous post to report that the CVS version I
retrieved on August 12 works great for me -- no keyboard freeze (and I've
been using it for a few days now). In case it helps, I'm running the same
system described below except that I recompiled my 2.6.7 kernel with the
16k stack made available by the linuxant patch (I had done this earlier,
when testing ndiswrapper 0.9, and have kept that kernel).
Sincere thanks to the developers for all their work on this!
