The first message here comes from the daemon, which means that
something is running it with the '--kill' switch to try and shut it
down. Initialization script shipped with ipw3945d package does not do
that, it just sends the signal directly to the daemon. I think what
happens is that you still have the old modprobe config file installed,
which was shipped as a part of ipw3945 before (see bug 399491 for
details). If you have /etc/modprobe.d/ipw3945-modules, please remove
it, then it should work as expected.
