You have an old version of the wireless-tools. The segv happens after
iwconfig has done its useful work, so it can be ignored.

Don't use module options for this, instead use "iwconfig eth1 essid
NAME" or you can set the ESSID in /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts.

The orinoco driver doesn't support the ap operation - we have no
information on how to program the card to associate with a given AP by
BSSID. In most cases setting the ESSID is sufficient.
