Kennel Panic

I have just check out hostap from CVS and am getting a kernel panic.

The machine I am running it on runs fine under it's max load in ad hoc mode the linux-wlan-ng-0.1.14-pre6 so I don't think it's hardware.

Kernel 2.4.18 from source, 128 meg of ram, on a ppro 180 Card Dlink-DWL 520

When I initially connect all seems to be going ok but after a while (a couple of minutes use) I get:

kernel panic:
Oops: 0002
CPU: 0
EIP: 0010:<c01bfc0e>] Not tainted
Process: swapper - me: nothing else has even cause a fault in the swapper on this well used machine with this same kernel register and hex call stack ...
<0>kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler! In interrupt handler - not syncing

syslog looks like this:
ul 25 23:05:31 [kernel] hostap_pci: hostap_pci.c 0.0.0 CVS (SSH Communications Security Corp, Jouni Malinen)

Jul 25 23:05:31 [kernel] hostap_pci: Registered netdevice wlan0

Jul 25 23:05:31 [kernel] wlan0: prism2_open

Anyone got any suggestions?
