That's a different bug, reported as <http://bugs.debian.org/518358>,
which you said was fixed in version 2.6.29-2.

I'm talking about the bug reported as <http://bugs.debian.org/542917>.

I've looked at where the message "wlan0: deauthenticating by local
choice (reason=3)" is generated, and it appears to mean that something
is setting the interface down.  I have been using the same WLAN device
and the same kernel version as you with no such problems.  So I think
this is an issue with wpa_supplicant or wpa_gui, or the way you have
configured them.  I will reassign the bug accordingly.
