I tried both without any -D option and with -Dipw.  
The ipw driver is the one bundeled with the kernel in ubuntu 5.04.  
I can find out the exact version until tomorrow.  
What I find interesting is that iwlist reports encryption while  
wpa_supplicant does not.  
I can send a complete debug output if this helps.
