iwconfig mode monitor error syslogd


I have been using my rt73 card for quite some time now in monitor mode. After I did an apt-get update && apt-get upgrade on my Debian testing box last night I get the following error when I try to associate with my access point while putting my card into monitor mode.

Code:
debian:/home/cannondump# iwconfig wlan0 essid linksys mode monitor
debian:/home/cannondump#

and my computer will sometimes freeze up completely after this error.

If I associate to the access point in managed mode I can get a connection fine.

Anyone have ideas on how to fix this error?

also uname -a produces
