Please post a full wpa_supplicant debug log (with -dd on command line).
In addition, you might want to upgrade ndiswrapper and/or wpa_supplicant
to the latest development version. If I understood correctly,
ndiswrapper .10 has a bug in WPA IE processing that may cause problems
that could match with your description here. Development version of
wpa_supplicant has a workaround for this and I would assume development
version of ndiswrapper has this issue fixed (I haven't verified this).
