I've noticed the same behavior [1] with the Nokia N810 and Nokia E70.  I 
never notice any errors in logs on either side (hostapd or the N810's 
dmesg), and it appears that the client never loses the association--as 
soon as I stop hostapd, the client reflects the de-association.  I have 
no problems with my crappy D-Link access point using WPA2.

Alas, I don't know enough about the viscera of WiFi to even know where 
to start, but with a little guidance, I'd be glad to dig into this problem.
