Update on this: I rebuilt the hostap driver from yesterday's CVS source and it 
seems to be working fine again.
Also, about the new AP sorting feature: I complained about the lack of  this 
before and saw in the changelogs that it was added. It also seems to work for 
me as well, so thanks very much for that :)
