Well it certainly asked for wavelan2_cs to be loaded.

The only thing I can think of is that you've got a line in
/etc/modules.conf that aliases wavelan2_cs to wvlan_cs.  The 3.1.15
drivers use modprobe by default so aliases will be followed... but
3.1.14 uses insmod.  As for where the alias came from, you've got me.
