FC3 ndiswrapper - not working after udev update?

I cannot get ndiswrapper to work correctly after the udev upgrade, anyways.. it works ok (not great) before updating udev, but it does not connect to the internet at all after the udev update....

Here is what happens, I do not have ndiswrapper set to startup at boot... after I login, i go to the network gui tool... and click on activate, it gives me a message that wlan0 is not active. I remove and the ndiswrapper entry on the hardware tab.. and go through the wizard and set everything back up. After the setup I click on activate, and it says everything is started and I get an ip address and everything.. the problem is after I activate the network.. every thing on the computer chugs very very slow. After launching and waiting 5 minutes for firefox to load.. I try and hit a web page and it can never resolve an address.

A quick downgrade to the udev version on disc one.. and all the above problems disappear?? Anyone else having these problems?? If it matters I tried ndiswrapper .7 and .8. I have never been able to get 9 and 10 to work on my system.
