Michael - 

I honestly have never used hostap outside of the driver with a Linksys
card.  The linksys card that I have has the wrong hostap firmware, so it
won't work.

If you turn off wep_key_len_broadcast, and wep_key_len_unicast, but leave
the wep_rekey_period turned on, do you get key frames?

The only other thing I can think of, is a while back, someone from Xerox
PARC said that the Linksys cards can't go in to a mode where they will
allow both encrypted, and unencrypted frames.  So, when a station first
comes up, and it doesn't have the correct WEP key, it will be ignored.

But, these are really only shots in the dark...  Sorry..
