I could not reproduce this problem with the current kernel from
wireless-testing.git, and the current wpa_supplicant. It's also using
[ 8796.253071] rtl8187 1-6:1.0: usb_probe_interface
[ 8796.253078] rtl8187 1-6:1.0: usb_probe_interface - got id

The difference is that I'm using WPA2 and CCMP on the AP.
I suggest removing ap_scan=1. You may also want to check all
differences between two machines. Try using the same device on both of
them. Try using another AP.
