It was likely something odd with my environment at the time; I vaguely
recall seeing a message about "ldconfig: not found" flashing by.

Yes, unless there's a more recent one. It works just fine on 2.4GHz.
I'll try re-installing it, and hey! It's updating it to 0.43! But no,
it's still not seeing my 5GHz network, only the 2.4GHz one; I guess I'll
have to wait for someone to reverse-engineer the chip even further (or
dump the thing in favour of one that's a little less proprietary).
Thanks for your help anyway.
