Are you using a recent version of madwifi-ng from SVN? (ie, within the
last 3 - 4 weeks)

I've tried recent versions, and I've talked to at least two other people
who've tried recent versions, and nobody has gotten it to work reliably
with wpa_supplicant.  Sometimes I don't event get it to work reliably on
it's own with iwconfig and the custom utils.  They really need to get
their s**t together.  On a side note, if anyone knows of a good /stable/
revision of madwifi-ng SVN, please let me know.
