I've also hit exactly the same problem.  I also remember finding
a description of the issues and the solution, but I can't
seem to find the relevant page right now.  I do remember the
solution, though.  :)

On the 7th of Feb, 2002, a patch was entered into the linux
kernel with the description "fix orinoco wireless system-freeze
problem".  I believe that patch is now in 2.4.19-rc2 and
above.  (2.4.19 is released now, so it obviously has the fix.)

Unfortunately I've been a little busy and haven't had a chance
to test the fix with my own setup.  I do remember a few reports
saying that it has certainly helped.

All the best,
