I tested xsupplicant v0.5 today, but it segfaulted when I tried to
authenticate.. I didn't yet have time to check why. Anyway, older
version of xsupplicant work fine with the same certificates and
configuration using hostapd as Authenticator and FreeRADIUS as
Authentication Server.

Authenticator state machines set the port into unauthorized state when a
new station is added so it is OK to get that messages after EAPOL-Start.
The port is authorized for the first time only after successful
authentication has been completed.
