Which version of the madwifi driver are you using?

If you can build a newer version of wpa_supplicant yourself, I would
recommend testing that.. There have been changes in both madwifi and
wpa_supplicant and testing with the latest release from development
branch (0.5.5) could be a good idea..

Can you please send debug log from ap_scan=1 case?

This is invalid configuration. If ap_scan=2, proto, key_mgmt, group, and
pairwise options must be defined. This example does not set pairwise.

This does not match with the example configuration above..
