wpa_supplicant: WPA: EAPOL-Key Replay Counter did not increase - dropping packet

I've got the same issue, strange enough wpa_supplicant 0.5.0 functions
fine , same access point - Nortel 2220, as long as I use the Dell 1450
built-in adapter using ndiswrapper with bcmwl5a. it works with both

If I use the same wpa_supplicant, same /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, it
fails using a PCMCIA wireless card using madwifi drivers, which fails
with both WPA variants.

only difference is that my card never connects - the "replay counter"
errors come immediately, and constantly.

I can echo Joey, I'd be very interested to provide whatever logs, etc..
are needed.
