Hostap AP to Hostap Managed 44:44:44:44:44:44

This must be a simple issue, but I am running hostap 0.1.3 on two
machines, one it AP mode, then one in Managed mode.  Using engenius
2511MP Plus cards in pci mode.  

The ap mode on the unit works well, but the client never seems to join
the essid, just flipping channels like a hyperactive couch potato and
staying at AP 44:44:44:44:44:44   Also noted that the bit rate goes to 2
Mbps and that the interface is dropping packets.

I have tried to iwconfig the ap mac with no joy.  I did see some earlier
emails about this as a problem, hostap to hostap, but no solutions. 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
