Does "bt" by any chance mean you are running backtrack there?

Well you didn't specify so when referring to "other linux".
backtrack - being a special purpose distro - is anything else than representative.
AFAIK it may use patched drivers and otherwise modified or unstable versions of software.
What is mentioned in this thread regardig airdriver-ng applies.

Ok what about Ubuntu do you think it is ok for the test or you have an idea for better distro . I can easily try out other distro's but I think there is some problem indeed with the package. If you can give me an example of linux distro to test I can try it.

Best Regards.

Your are free to fix it, to try an unstable svn version on TC, etc.

What bmarkus said, that and/or use airdriver-ng in aircrack-ng.tcz as in repo to check upon and then potentially patch your drivers.
One of those approaches may be enough per se if you are lucky.

It was not me recommending comparison with other distros, but you referencing such.
But as you ask, to directly answer your question:
No, ubuntu has a reputation of being a highly patched and hacked debian derivative - my first choice as reference for a stable and pure distro would be slackware (latest stable version, not "current").
