I've seen issues when running wpa_supplicant and hostapd on different 
(physical ath9k) cards simultaneously with WPA-EAP - it looked like some 
messages where only received by either hostapd or wpa_supplicant. Though 
I had no need to dig deeper (I could just disable hostapd in my setup to 
make it work).
But I don't know if this affects you (if this even still exists).
