The error occurs when you flip the hardware wifi switch at the front
of the computer to the off position and run "nmap --iflist". The error
is a failed assertion. This one is a little wired, I got a few of my
friends to test it out and they had mixed results, some hit the bug,
some didn't. It was tested on two R60's and a T60, both R60's
experienced the error while the T60 didn't.
I'm writing a patch for it right now but I would like it if some other
people with laptops that have hardware wifi switches tested this out.
Can this be reproduced by disconnecting or disabling a NIC or is it
specific to a wireless driver putting the NIC in some strange off state?
