Was getting this problem too, 1 maybe 2 packets a second on ipw3945 (with driver 1.1.0). Turned out it has something to do with the ipw deamon (or so I'm lead to bel;ieve.
All I did was;
sudo ipw3945d- --kill

And the capture rate now ranges between 10 and lots (not sure exactly, have seen it jump by 1000 or so in one refresh). Depending on network load.
