Thanks for the response.  I discovered that it is related to XFCE and 
not just the laptop.  I posted this revision with modified subject;

"I had a thought and tried it using Gnome and it works fine.  So the 
problem is not with my laptop but with XFCE.  If I start cold or 
restart with XFCE as the desktop I have the problem in both of my 
computers.  If I use Gnome it doesn't do it."

I have the latest kernel and the problem occurs with 3 different 
chipset wireless adapters.  So the fact that one of them is bcm43 is 
probably not this problem.
