This is not the expected behavior and I do not need to force
reassociation in my tests with ndiswrapper. Could yu please send
wpa_suplicant debug log (i.e., do not fork to background with -B and
add -ddd to command line) for a case where you let it run first for a
minute or two before running "wpa_cli reassociate"? I would like to see
what is happening and why reassociation request trigger the completion
of the negotiation.
