lost connectivity until "wpa_cli reassociate" is issued

We are seeing a curious issue with wpa_supplicant (both version 1.0
and 2.5) where WLAN connectivity sometimes gets stuck until a
"reassociate" command is issued. wpa_cli status does not indicate any
problems as far as I can see (actual MAC and SSID info is x-ed out):
# wpa_cli status
Selected interface 'wlan0'
The problem happens with no discernible pattern. Usually it takes
hours or days before it appears.
Sometimes the problem fixes itself, usually after a few hours.
I'm not overly familiar with wpa_supplicant or WPA in general, so any
tips for how to debug this
further would be appreciated.
Thanks and best regards,
