Strange. I'm aware of APs that send a wpa/rsn_ie but accept both WPA and WEP 
associations for one SSID. This is some kind of migration mode to allow 
moving a network with a huge number of clients from WEP to WPA. However, if 
privacy is disabled this looks like a bug in the AP. Can you capture some 
beacons in monitor mode?
