I'm using r1453 and that seems to work, too, without major problems.

Do you mean: cannot set it to wpa=2 or wpa=3? wpa=0 would mean that
WPA/WPA2 is disabled completely..

I believe the driver had a bug that was fixed and that fix happened to
change the interface to hostapd which required yet another change..
Anyway, the current CVS/SVN versions seem to work fine with WPA, WPA2
and mixed WPA+WPA2 mode. This was fixed around r1453, so your version is
likely too old to have the needed changes.
