i read it on
which is the wiki for "grml", a debian-based linux distribution; they
seem to have tested wpa_supplicant with linux-wlan-ng and (strangely on
first sight) hostap-driver.
so probably the problem is not the wlan-ng drivers in itself, but the
version of it or of wpa_supplicant or of both in conjunction (??), so i
think i'm giving up.
