Figured out that if hostapd and wpa_supplicant are running 
simultaneously,then hostapd should be the last one to run.....if that is 
the case,then the problem mentioned  never occurs....ideally though 
hostapd and wpa_supplicant should be independent of each other......can 
you suggest the reason for this behaviour?
