WPA then WEP not working in AP mode (ver0.2.4) ?

I have noticed a problem with the hostap driver (0.2.4). If I
successfully run "(1) Enable WPA" (shown below) with TKIP or CCMP and
then run "(2) Enable wep" (shown below), my station gets associated but
no data can be transmitted (I won't get an IP address from the AP using
If I run (1) or (2) separately and reload the hostap modules between the
steps it works.
This is how to reproduce it:
(1) Enable wpa
iwconfig wlan0 mode master essid wpa2 key off
/usr/sbin/hostapd -d hostapd.wlan0.conf.wpa
(2) Enable wep
iwconfig wlan0 mode master essid wep key 12345678901234567890123456
prism2_param wlan0 ieee_802_1x 0
/usr/sbin/hostapd -d hostapd.wlan0.conf.wep
Have I forgotten something between the steps to get it working?
STAID in AP is 1.7.4
I have tested the setup with both a Linux client running hostap 0.2.4
and a windows client
