No problem but that means we have to look elsewhere :-)

Okay, let's back to the warning message and the behaviour you get. Some
1/ Despite the warning on the PID, is the wireless connection still
available and working?
2/ How did you setup the network, by manually editing the "/etc/network/
interfaces" file or using an applet such N-M or WICD?
3/ Do you have a pattern for the error? I mean, when are you getting that
message? It could be normal if you (or a daemon) restart (or shutdown and
then start) the network service or that wireless interface (wlan1).
