WEP-related wifi bug

Steps to reproduce:

1. Either connect to a wireless network or do a scan
(this means that the automatic channel scanning that was supposed to fix
things breaks using WFC in this case)
2. Try to connect to a WEP network

Observe that it fails. Turn off the DS, turn it back on, and go straight
to step 2. Works.

This bug has been around for a long time, and it would be nice to get it
 fixed. I don't know wireless or kernel code well enough, but I'm able
to capture packets.

Will .cap files dumped by airodump-ng do? If not, what should be used?
And who should the capture files be sent to (I'd prefer not to post them
to the list)?
