I've not used wpa_supplicant a lot on my own, but it seems a
little bit strange, that wpa_supplicant tries to associate to a specific BSS
ID and later reports that connecting to a full-zero MAC timed out. So at this
point in time. It looks like an interaction problem between the
softmac, wpa_supplicant and our driver. It will go on my TODO
list, but don't expect any quick resolution. I have a full-time
job and I'm a football fan :-)

Regards,

Uli
