Hello Jean,

Attached is a bugreport regarding iwlist from wireless-tools version 28.
Do you know if this is a bug in iwlist or in the driver, and if it's
fixed in a later version of either?

Package: wireless-tools
Version: 28-1
Severity: normal

Dear Guus,

iwlist scan crashes on my system the following way:

sorbetã~ã$ LC_ALL=C /sbin/iwlist scan
lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth1      Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth2      Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth0      Scan completed :
          Cell 01 - Address: 76:40:00:01:00:11
                    ESSID:"" [64]
                    Protocol:[email protected] 802.11b
Erreur de segmentation

sorbetã~ã$ lspci |grep Wireless
0001:01:01.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g 
Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)

I attached a strace to this bug.

The network works fine however.

Have a nice weekend,
