Ah, on #debian I didn't see or you didn't say that this card had worked with
testing before. I still don't know the solution but have a quick idea you
might want to check out.
I had an insane problem with a wireless card losing connection when ever
anyone logged out of kde or gnome. Drove me nuts. There was in irq conflict
and moving the wireless card to a different slot, and removing an unused card
fixed the problem.
