Bug#405270: systems hangs during boot with radio kill switch on


I'd like to report that I have the same issue : I have a Dell Latitude D420 featuring an Intel 3945ABG card, and a "radio kill switch". When booting with the switch on (i.e. radio off) the system hangs during the boot sequence, somewhat between /etc/init.d/ipw3945d (most likely there) and /etc/init.d/networking. With radio on it starts OK.

This has been observed with various versions of ipw3945 packages in testing/unstable. Currently I have :
ii  firmware-ipw3945                  0.3
ii ipw3945-modules-2.6.18-3-686 2.6.18+1.1.3-3 (compiled with m-a)
ii  ipw3945-modules-2.6.18-4-686      2.6.18+1.1.3-4 (from contrib)
ii  ipw3945-source                    1.1.3-3
ii  ipw3945d                          1.7.22-4
and I tried with the official kernels :
ii  linux-image-2.6.18-3-686          2.6.18-7
ii  linux-image-2.6.18-4-686          2.6.18.dfsg.1-10
(I had the same bug with older 2.6.17, I have a self-compiled 2.6.20 at hand but module-assistant fails to build ipw3945 for it...)

Best regards,
