rsn_ie_len=0 caps=0x1 skip - SSID mismatch

Your configuration file is UTF-8 encoded, whereas the ESSID of the AP is
latin1/latin9-encoded. So the '?' (\xc3\xa2) in your configuration file
does not match the \xe2 in the ESSID.

[mandatory joke about latin9 users still living in a castle omitted, as
this is maybe the case]
