Not on this hardware. I just installed it today. Like I said, I only
installed the version from backports.org to see if it would fix the bug.
I've now purged and downgraded the networkmanager packages to versions
As for the kernel; there's no point downgrading to the kernel in stable,
since it lacks drivers for the wireless interface, and even the driver
for the ethernet interface doesn't work in 2.6.26. :(

Unfortunately I can't do this as I need to run stable on this system.
I'm just setting it up for my Dad to use.
