> Why do the 'up' echoes not show up?
You're on Debian or it's lesser descendents (Ubuntu, laught). And
their scripts are involved into your problem. It's not
wpa_supplicant's fault what you see!
Now, you can use "ifup -v" for verbose operation and/or put a "set -x"
to get a trace near the beginning of /etc/network/if-up.d/<script>. It
forgot the actual name, but <script> might probably be named
wpasupplicant or similar.
