DWL-520 freeze, CVS driver

I resolved my prior issues with the -many- TXEXC RetryErr and resulting massive logfiles by switching to the CVS snapshot. I'm now using that driver on both my desktop/server (DWL-520 PCI) in HostAP Master mode and my laptop (DWL-650 PCMCIA) in Managed mode. I'm thinking that perhaps the client was the issue rather than the server. Anyhow, now I've experienced the freeze again on the server/host. There are no errors immediately preceding the freeze in /var/log/syslog after I reboot (very hard lock, used magic sysrq to shut things down). The only wlan0 related errors are the following sprinkled across several hours:

Jul 26 13:19:52 jukebox kernel: protocol 0016 is buggy, dev wlan0

Any thoughts? Let me know what type of things I should do and look for to provide decent debug info.
