Can connect to WPA network, but not to open network: BCM4312 card w/ b43 driver

I seem to be unable to successfully be able to connect to an open
access point, although connecting to a WPA network (through wicd
frontend) works.

I am running the latest squeeze, with kernel 2.6.32-5-686. My machine
is a Dell Mini 10v.

My card is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01).

    $ sudo lspci -vvn|grep 4315 -A9

I'm using the b43 driver, installed via the contrib
firmware-b43-lpphy-installer package:

    $ lsmod | grep b43
    b43                   132595  0
    mac80211              123574  1 b43

    rng_core                2178  1 b43
    led_class               1757  1 b43
    ssb                    33686  1 b43
    mmc_core               38491  2 b43,ssb
    pcmcia                 16194  2 b43,ssb
    pcmcia_core            20450  3 b43,ssb,pcmcia

This is how the wicd README.Debian says /etc/network/interfaces should look:

    $ cat /etc/network/interfaces
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

If I can't figure this out and want to file a bug report, should I
file it against the "linux-image-2.6.32-5-686" package? Thanks for any
clues and advice.
