This is a Cisco AP1200, with IOS version 12.2(15)JA. I'll enable some 
debugging on the AP today and have a look. It may take some unraveling, as 
the authentication is handled by a different AP than the one I'm associating 
to (with Cisco's Wireless Domain Services), but I may disable that for now.

Yes, that's correct. I've been using the hostap driver 0.2.2 and 
wpa_supplicant 0.2.2 on a Netgear MA401 for a while now on these same APs, 
with good results. I tried my CVS copy of wpa_supplicant with my existing 
0.2.2 driver, and it did not work (failed very early in the process, with an 
error about an unsupported IOCTL, if I remember correctly.) I'll rebuild the 
driver from CVS and give that a try as well.

Thanks for your help,
