That's why I use the Realtek driver variant...
In fact, also I suspect that r8712u have also some power management issues and the connection is unstable, behaving exactly like you described.
Then, I wanted to make 8712u to work with the current kernels, to have an official driver POV about my wireless card.
Knowing C/C++, I created that little patch to fix the compiling, still being an great lazy, I accepted that messages pollution, without to try to fix the cause(s), because I use that card on an computer that is not "mission critical", to be honest, it is used for something like web browsing and Skype conversations.
And, for me, the (patched) 8712u works fine and stable, without great problems.
