only that this address is not the bssid of my ap "OpenWrt"

well the one i connect to definitely does - apart from having it
configured that way this is the relevant iwlist output:
Cell 03 - Address: 00:22:15:27:3B:18
Frequency:2.432 GHz (Channel 5)
Quality=49/70 Signal level=-61 dBm
funnily, now some time later i tried inserting
in my wpa_supplicant.conf again because the iwlist output didnt show any
ap with an bssid of 00:18:84:1d:83:fa anymore - for some reason
and this time it worked flawlessly
since i could also connect without any problems to an unencrypted ap at
work and could now connect to my local one once that 00:18:84:1d:83:fa
was gone, it seems that i only get this issue when this network is around.
so isnt that a bug if the presence of some network screws up
wpasupplicant that badly? it tried to do above associations a dozen
times a seconds and failed.

for no specific reason - can try using Cfg80211 instead later
sorry, forgot to reply-all this message - that status update hopefully
adds more information to the issue.
