Ta-Chien Lin sent us a link to a previous post at The patch there 
fixes the problem but it appears hostapd is correct in sending out both IEs 
according to Page 83/98 of the 802.11i spec.

Wireshark has a similar problem and does not decode the data field in all 
cases because of an incorrect conditional in epan/disectors/packet-eapol.c
