I can't see this from your attached log, I see there:

> 1222006706.852859: ath0: STA 06:0b:6b:2d:d6:06 WPA: sending 1/4 msg of 4-Way Handshake
> 1222006707.853203: ath0: STA 06:0b:6b:2d:d6:06 WPA: EAPOL-Key timeout

Here the timeout is around 1sec as it should be.

All this sounds like a client interactivity speed problem. Try to 
increase dot11RSNAConfigPairwiseUpdateTimeOut in wpa.c.
