I would like to see a capture file showing all frames, including full
payload, in format that I can load into Ethereal.

What happens if you do not swap the key?

I'm missing something here. Above you say that there is no traffic from
the AP after 4-Way Handshake and the "don't seem to reply" part sounds

is a frame I would like to see in the wireless sniffer log that is
captured from another host observing this handshake.
