Hi,

I have a laptop with this wifi device:
44:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 (rev 35)

Whenever connecting to a wifi network in non-encrypted mode, the laptop 
freezes. WPA2 and WEP seem to work fine.

Version 0.29 is not affected. It would be very nice if you could include 
this version in a point release.

After more analysis, it seems the affected firmware
(iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode) has not changed. 

Since I have not changed anything else than firmware-iwlwifi between the
time when it crashed (reproducibly) and now that it works, I’m a bit
concerned. But upgrading firmware-iwlwifi won’t fix the bug.

Closing, as I see no way to reproduce or investigate this.
