I saw those errors, and failed to connect, also using FC8 with a ndiswrapper
but a different  USB dongle (TEW).    However, NetworkManager is more or
less working (too frequent disconnects from my AP, connects to random
open AP's).   Check that there isn't a 2nd copy of wpa_supplicant running.

Have you tried NetworkManager?
