I used the following wpa_supplicant.conf and had no problems to connect
to a hidden SSID:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~# cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
# WPA-PSK/TKIP

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ap_scan=2

network={
        ssid="HIDDEN"
        scan_ssid=0
        proto=WPA
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        pairwise=TKIP
        group=TKIP
        psk="what ever"
}
