What does this indication mean?

In my Michael tests I'm coming across the following message from hostapd
running in WPA-PSK mode:
Wireless event: cmd=0x8c02 len=81
Custom wireless event: 'MLME-MICHAELMICFAILURE.indication
(keyid=9 unicast addr=00:0f:20:94:54:b9)'
MLME-MICHAELMICFAILURE.indication for not
associated STA (00:0f:20:94:54:b9) ignored
I also sometimes get MLME-REPLAYFAILURE from the same MAC addr.
Can someone explain why a non-associated station would tell hostapd that
there's been a MIC failure? This could be related to my problem where my
AP sometimes goes into TKIP countermeasures when I boot up my stations.
Also, could that other station be sending the indication due to traffic
ESSID? As far as I know that station never associated with my ESSID.
