message logs filling up w/ wlan0 buffer too small error

Hi Guys,

I'm using an internal PCI wireless card on Mandrake 9.2 w/ kernel 2.4.22-10mdk. The wireless functions great using ndiswrapper version 0.4 and the Windows drivers. The only concern I have is with an error message that is making my logs virtually worthless. Dmesg, for example, is full of them, all in a row when wlan0 is up.

Here's the contents of the repeated message:

lan0 (WE) : Buffer for request 8B0B too small (0<308)
wlan0 (WE) : Buffer for request 8B1B too small (0<5)
wlan0 (WE) : Buffer for request 8B0B too small (0<308)
wlan0 (WE) : Buffer for request 8B1B too small (0<5)

Repeated a zillion times as the card sends packets, I assume. Any ideas?

Here's the output of lspci:
