	Puzzling. I'm using standard 2.4.23-pre9 (WE-16), standard
WT-26 and standard hostap-driver-0.1.2, and scanning is working fine
(5 APs). Firmware 1.4.9.

	Nope, custom is just a free form ASCII string. WT-24 would
"infinite loop" on custom events, but that's fixed in WT-25.
	Note that there is a bug where iwevent forget to "fflush" to
the terminal, and you would need 27-pre for this bugfix. You may want
to try that.
