    Whatever I did late in the past night: sleeping ten hours helped a lot!

    I can now confirm that "r8712u" works in Ad-hoc mode using
    "wpa_supplicant(8)", it gets its IP from DHCP, connects everywhere and
    lets me get spam and all that.

    I have a couple of fancy scripts overseeing things, much less intrusive
    than network-managers, but I disabled parts of them and did everything

    In the end it may well have been the windows-mobile device hanging on to
    its (dead) DHCP lease, but without that mobiles logs I won't know.

    I still wish "r8712u" would let me use wireless-tools/iwconfig, but
    I can live with "wpa_supplicant(8)".

    Thanks for your effort, guys!

    regards, clemens
