I have not tested the current hostapd version with Mac OS 10.3 clients.
Could you please first test what happens if you enable only TKIP as a
pairwise cipher ("wpa_pairwise=TKIP")? If that does not help, I would
suggest testing a change in hostap/ieee802_1x.h to use EAPOL version 1
(i.e., change '2' to '1' on "#define EAPOL_VERSION 2" line).
