No, I did just test this with the CF card, with firmware 5.0.11 and
5.0.16. On the USB dongle, I just tested if the code can still scan
at all and that I get connected to an AP.

For the CF card, I had let get me connected, and then I did an
"iwlist eth1 scan", which took 1.4 - 1.5 seconds for 11 channels. While
I was doing this, the built-in card of the same laptop was in monitor
mode and captured all packages via tshark into a pcap file, which I
later analyzed on my PC.
