It took some time for me to get a suitable test setup at home so that I
can try to reproduce this. Now that I have the test setup, I was
actually unable to reproduce this.. Broadcast packets and ping between
two associated STAs worked fine in my tests with WPA-PSK using TKIP.

Does sta1->hostapd ping work? What about hostapd->sta2?

Please give more details of your test setup, including configuration
files and driver/firmware versions of each device.
