There is no such line in hostapd 0.5.7 driver_madwifi.c, but there is
one in driver_bsd.c. I've only seen madwifi-ng being used to refer to
the Linux driver, so I think I would need bit more explanation on what
exactly you are testing.

This sounds like something that would required modifications to the
source code. Is the modified source code available somewhere?

Where are you seeing the segmentation fault in the other case?
