Thanks. I've just tried this again, using
options iwl3945 debug=0x0000bc88 disable_hw_scan=1
to be really sure the module had reloaded after rmmod/modprobe, and get 
the same behaviour of "SSID mismatch".

I *know* the SSID is correct and am able to connect from another device 
(Nokia N96 sunning Symbian 9.3/S60 R3 fp2)

I'm planning to backtrack wpa_supplicant versions *if* I don't hit 
dependency issues.

Also open to any better "debug=" suggestions

Finally from memory the behaviour was identical with ath5k with a 
different mini-PCI card. Unfortunately I broke one one of the mini 
antenna pins last time I swapped :-(
