I use the firmware version provided by the debian squeeze package:

apt-cache show firmware-iwlwifi | grep "Version\|4965"
Version: 0.18
Description: Binary firmware for Intel Wireless 3945, 4965 and 5000-series cards
 This package contains the binary firmware for Intel Wireless 3945, 4965,
  * Intel Wireless 4965 firmware, version
  * Intel Wireless 4965 firmware, version

About which version really gets loaded:
[   12.983331] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: firmware: requesting iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode
[   13.016724] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: loaded firmware version

I can try the kernel unstable version. however:
 - maybe I didn't stress enough that I only experienced this bug once.
 - should I also upgrade the firmware-iwlwifi package ?
