Hum...  That certainly explains a lot!  A question for veteran OpenWRT 
people: If I just reflash it with "new" firmware, I know it will keep 
all of my nvram settings, but will it keep all of my modified config 
files as well?  If I can scp out of the box, it will be trivial to back 
them up... but I was just curious.

Philippe: THANK YOU!  I will reflash it tonight then and hopefully that 
will be the end of it!  Would it be possible to get an md5sum of the 
firmware?  This way I can make sure it is not corrupt before I flash it 
(like last time).
