I'd have to re-check the big trace you're looking at, but at least in
my new one from today, it actually does the ADDBA before *any* traffic is
sent on TID=3.

The IV being different from what it should be definitely sounds like
something that would explain the odd behaviour of wireshark being able
to decode it, but MacOS rejecting it.  I guess MacOS could be
rejecting unexpected IVs to avoid replay attacks.
