I've recently had a similar problem.. putting the card into managed mode
then clearing the essid (associate to anything), it all works fine.. if the
card then tries to change back to master or into monitor mode, things all
lock up.  reloading the card fixes it.  if i beat on it for a while, hostap
decides to reset it and it works too.
