Pan causes WLAN failure of WRT54G

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Maybe I'll get some clues here about where to look for this problem.  I'm
not even sure this is really a security problem but here goes.  On an
intermittent basis, when opening Pan 0.132 on a Mandriva2008.1 laptop, it
causes the failure of broadcasting by my WRT54G router.  I must go and
reset the ESSID and the WPA passphrase on the router, whereupon the Mdv
and Mac laptops that are used in the house can re-associate with the
router and get their IP addresses back again.

Anyone seen behaviour like this before?
