KDE hangs when enabling wlan0 at boot.


I've installed GNU Debian on my vaio laptop en successfully installed ndiswrapper to work with my belkin wireless card.
If I bring up wlan0 after KDE has started using "ifup wlan0" the system works fine.

When I add the line "auto wlan0" to /etc/network/interfaces to start the device automatically, KDE hangs after the splash screen, and it also take a long time for the "Initializing System Services" step to complete.

Any idea what might be the problem here?
